Dear God, I need you now, more than ever,
Please help me be strong and help me get better...

There are so many things I want you to know,
I'm so hurt right now and I can't let go,
I'm so tired of crying please give me the strength,
To walk away from the mess that I face everyday...

Ignore all these stones that are thrown at me,
Pretend they don't hurt, maybe they'll leave me be,
I'm sorry for drifting from where I belong,
I hope you'll forgive me, I admit I was wrong...

My sacrifice, I need you now more than ever,
Help me be strong, and live for the better...

Comfort me with hope that the hurt soon will end,
I've lost my faith, I pray to you, bring it back again.
I don't know who I am, Change me to the person I was before him,
Let him see all he is, His heart is black and you see him within...

Let me let him go, those prayers, I know you've heard before,
As much as these tears of mine, falling to the floor,
I know that you were there with me, like you always are,
Looking down on everything, you never seem too far...

Save me God, I need you now, more than ever before,
Take me away from here, cover these scars, love me forever more...

Fill this empty space with something from above,
Change this empty place, erase this untrue love,
Promise me you'll never leave, you'll never turn away,
I'm sorry I pused you aside, I'm sorry if you felt betrayed...

I've learned that without you, everything goes wrong,
I searched so hard to find meaning, but with you is where I belong,
Thank you for giving me the strength to see, I know you didn't go too far,
You were always here with me, wherever I look there you are...

Forgive me Lord, for I am me, My sins to be erased,
You picked up the pieces of my heart and filled that empty space...

Awesom thoughts... very spiritual. I, personally, thought this poem was the best I've read from you. You really opened up, and let us into your heart chambers. Beautiful work, I am impressed.

I loved your structure in the poem. The couplet, stanza, stanza, couplet format enhanced the flow and made it very easy to read.

Wonderful work, Ali. Like I said, I am very impressed! Thanks for an awesome read.

I googled "Dear God I need you now" and found your poem. Your words speak my heart at this moment in time. It's reassuring to know I'm not the first to go through this. Thanks...
