I have always loved you with an undying love;
You’ve responded only with laxity and apathy.
I have cared, pulling you back from the snare;
You’ve never showed gratitude in your attitude.
I have always encouraged you and nourished you;
You’ve responded by starving me of affection.
I have always given my best through every test;
You’ve turned away and burned in sordid lies.
I have always treasured you with happy pleasure;
You’ve taken me for granted, enchanted by self.
Now I am tired and weary, leery of giving more
For I am sore afflicted and conflicted in soul.
And what will you do now but to go on your way
Without one word to say? But is this the day
When I must sigh and forever say goodbye?
Or will God turn your heart of stone to flesh,
And make an altogether new beginning…
