Teach me how to live without the touch of my lovers hand.
Give me strength to accept things that I donít understand.
Show me how to keep the faith that falters day and night.
Help me to keep my goals and dreams forever in my sight.

Time will work against me this Iíve come to realize.
Tears that well and overflow, reflect the pain within my eyes.
Though I will try to keep my path forever straight and true.
I can only hope that it will lead me right to you.

Iíve always tried to live my life the best that I know how.
But looking back I realize how wrong it was till now.
I am but a sinner Lord, help me to overcome.
Help me change my habits so that I wonít die as one.

I will keep my faith in God forever true and steady.
I am waiting here for you whenever you are ready.
Iíll try not to question the decisions that you make.
Each night before I go to sleep Iíll pray my soul you take.

My faith resides far from any organized religion, but this was well said. I'm sure your words will not go unheeded. (Don't think however that you are saved from my future rath ) Be well!
