the world within me

Chapter 116
Learn to love again

Learn to love again
First love lost
First love gone
First love left
First love forlorn

How can I love again
How do I put you there
Upon the throne of my heart
With a beautiful burden to bear

How do I love again
In this frozen winter
And the statue in the snow
No more wood and tinder

Why donít I love again
Catching my momentary glimpse
A thousand other things
These fancies and whims

I have no ability
To change this heart of stone
Once was I with you
Now I sit alone

The lights dazzle me
Clichť as it may be
But come Lord I cry
Come and set me free

Once wings had I
To love others as you do
Once I saw through deceit
And knew what was true

Once I was free
And our love was real and deep
Now itís almost gone
Indifference will not weep

Lift, Lord, my soul
My eyes to look to thee
And melt my heart again
Lift my eyes to see

Prone to wander indeed
Is my rebellious heart
From the love you give
From there I depart

Even in my cry
Stubborn to turn around
And just like Cain who wailed
I feel so hell-bound

Help Lord Iím helpless
I cannot rekindle love
Only you can hold me up
And send your white dove

Help Lord remind me
Just like the psalmist has
Let me love again
Amidst this selfish mess
