Empty, that is how I feel right now,
Completely, utterly empty;
Nothing left inside me now;
Everything has disappeared:
Gone are the words from the pages,
Gone the very pages too;
There is nothing here now
But silence and emptiness.
Your face once was like a light here
Chasing all the shadows with a smile;
You brought joy and peace here;
Now forever they are gone.
Only loneliness awaits here
Beckoning me to enter in;
I long so much for your presence
Yet know that forever you are gone.
O Life, I truly cannot bear it!
The pain is just too great,
I am weighed down
By so much pain and desolation;
I feel I can no longer breathe,
Like some great noose
Is tightened round me,
I would escape but cannot move.
Is there any who can save me?
How I need a Saviour now!
Please, Lord, do not leave me helpless
Or I perish all forlorn.
You alone are my Redeemer,
You alone have power to save;
Only You Lord have the answers;
Come Lord Jesus is my plea.
