I have been fumbling through the darkness
And the only way I can see that is with eyes laid on you
You are light.

I have been in solitary confinement on death row
And in my eleventh hour you are clemency to me
You are freedom.

I have been thrashing in the deep in the coldest waters imaginable
And you have saved my life by putting your own on the line
You are salvation.

I had lost all hope as I descended into the morbid depths of hell itself
And solely by chance my saving grace has possessed you to redeem my existence
You are infinity.

How do I repay these life debts?
Maybe you’ll take my undying love in exchange.

How much higher can you take me?
I haven’t touched the ground since I approached you that day.

Will we ever fall off of this ledge that we dangle from?
Suspended here with you forever is my definite preference.

Can I look at you and not not tell you that I love you?
Nothing can be purer than my adoration for you.

You grant me infinite lenience
My soul escapes a thousand years of torment with you in the picture
All tucked in by your glorious grace
And embalmed by the peace you bestow.

One response to ““Clemency.””

  1. Thank you for choosing to follow my blog, Bobbing Around. I hope my words will be of service to you for a long time.

    You may be aware that for the moment, I am seeking reviews for my latest book, Lifting the Gloom, and am happy to email you a free copy.

    Also, I am currently seeking more blogs and podcasts for interviews to publicize my last four books.
