Random Drama

Little by little I am lifting my fingers off my palm
I am trying to let go
I know I must put my trust in You
You know better than I do
The sadness is swimming inside my head
Waiting for that one moment to cripple me
I tried to be still. But it in silence,
I can hear the proverbial clock ticking
Counting the days before goodbye

Little by little, my palms are opening
In you Lord, I trust that through this pain
It will lead me to know you more
Intimately. Deeper.
I can feel the word goodbye hovering above
My head. Playing with the winds
Ready to break me.

Lord, my palms are wide open
I’m giving everything up to you
Please take care of it, of everything that’s
Precious to me
Take care of it, hide it in your heart
Hold it with your embrace
Nurture it for whom it belongs
I cannot let it go for anyone but you
For in your arms I know it’ll be
Well taken cared of.
Well loved.
Protected.
Keep it in your arms
Until my own palms are ready
To accept it back again
Until my grasps are stronger
Until my arms are ready
To carry the weight of everything it is

My palms are wide open, Lord
Please take my hand, grasp it tight
I entrust my life to you
Lead me where I need to go
My palms can be sweaty
Please Lord don’t let it go
My palms are wide open
Fill it with your love
My palms are wide open
Ready to let go
Ready to hold you
