Why is it always so very hard these days
To give all I am in this world to you
Why is it so easy for one to forget
All the wonderful things you daily do

I always seem to find it so very easy
When I hear another voice to speak
That I realize I am no longer connected
And your love I no longer want to keep

Why is it so hard to bring myself
To stop being selfish to all I now see
Why is it so totally true and ironic
That my heart bleeds each time I leave

Why am I lost in a maze of jumbled thoughts
That handcuff my heart never letting me be
Why when I sleep alone in my rooms darkness
I find its your loveís essence I long to see

Why is it so hard to embrace you each day
Not longing for anotherís welcoming kiss
Why wonít I embrace your wholesome love
Knowing it will cure my hearts loneliness

I cry within the deep darkness of my soul
Wondering why it is I will never change
Then I heard a silent voice calling out to me
Saying come to me and believe in my Name

And humbly I turned to the sweet love I know
Who never turned his face away from me
I committed my heart and soul to his trust
While receiving a pure grace that set me free.

I kept reading hoping this was going to lead to Christ, which it does. Thanks.

Check your punctuation.

Nice job - this was very good. Clever line "handcuff my heart"

This created all kinds of images and thoughts, and at the end a great message.

Thanks - I liked it!
God Bless~

"Handcuffed my heart" really painted a picture for me also. Good job.

This was good. It could have used some punctuation so I could stop and take a natural breath.
