Here I sit alone in the dark,
nothing to hear but the sound of my heart,
Old lost memories running through my head,
Things I thought were long dead.
There was a time I was left all alone,
No brothers and sisters,
not even a home.
I remember the tears running down my face,
As the strangers came to take me away.
A troubled child I may have been,
As an adult I ask to be forgiven.
I seem to be looking for peace,
Down deep in my soul.
A peace that should be sacred,
That only the lord can bestow.
