This is all I hear knocking at my door
The urgent call to answer draws me near
Once opened, the door refuses to close
How dare you impose?
I beg of you, depart from me!
My urgent desire to close the door increases
With all my force, I try to close it
I am too weak
I am not strong enough
I fight so hard that I soon become paralyzed and numb
I can no longer fight
I feel alone and helpless
The water is quickly arising as I sit here drowning in despair.
Will someone please save me?
I pray incessantly crying out to God
Please save me before I drown in despair!
Please shut the door for me!
I am too weak!
I am not strong enough!
Suddenly, I hear a soft- spoken, comforting, gentle voice
I have already saved you
Do you not remember?
You are mine by blood
Through me, you are strong
Through me, you are unbroken
Give me your broken pieces and let me mend them!
For you are not alone and don’t have to fear
I will help you if you let me.
