(improv)

 

my smile fades as the night bleeds on.
my strength fails midway from dusk to dawn.
my grip loosens as the day drags on.
my eyes fail when this life adds up...
sustain my smile
and supply my strength.
strengthen my grip
and enlighten my eyes.
restore my life,
refresh my river
of living waters inside.
yesterday's gone
now today awaits me
save me from the hook of self-absortion
that baits me.
i'm falling down in front of You
i've nothing left to do.
nothing else promises life anew,
beauty so true.
