Almost

A jealous sun peeking from a gray cloud,
   I almost sense some joy in me.
Burning yellow, brightest blessing so loud
   wanting to break me free.

For too long I cried each day
   wanting things that could never be.
I've sought the Heart as I prayed
   there is the good that I should see.

Nervous feet to seek Your will;
   how can I go this alone.
Then I remembered when I was still
   this is the path to Your home.

Almost gone, almost here;
   almost happy and ready to give.
You're the only reason to have cheer;
   only the Way that I could live.

But then it's You that gives me life,
   that I could dare to praise Your name.
You are the Friend who stays beside;
   before You I have no shame.

Almost in shadows, almost in light;
   almost dead embers, or supernova.
I'm almost joy, burning so bright;
   having the Hope I know it's not over.

Each burning day begins with an ache;
   I'm brought down before Your throne.
Then I remember in my state,
   each burning day takes me almost home.
