Life has thrown me down again

my face buried in the mud

And the last of my breathe escapes

into the still, silent air

I do not want to get up

To get up and try again

Because I have fallen before

And I will fall again

A timid little creature am I

Who longs to be at ease

All I want is the safety

the safety of your love

What kingdoms I would give

My riches to offer up

To some uncaring entity

if it would buy me love

Your smile is so gentle

It inspires me to hope

That maybe you will take me back

Into the cradle of your arms

Wearily I stumble past

The pearly gates of heaven

Empty promises of peace

Are not for ones like me.

There is only one weakness

One will that leads me on

And that is you, my love
