THE LOCKED DOOR
I sit alone in the black room
No windows, no sunshine , only gloom.
I sit here and I feel the pain
Sadness falls on me like rain.
Thoughts in my mind run like a river
There is no hope it makes me shiver.
The door was open not long ago
What made it close , I do not know.
Time and days mean nothing here
No clock, no calendar, only fear.
I have been in this room many times before
And I know there is a key to open the door.
I have to search , look and findw
The key is somewhere in my mind.
I search and look for days on end
God help me find that key again.
I can't go on like this any more
I must find a way to open the door.
I fall to my knees and pray for light
Lord help me make it through to night.
And the Lord hears my plea
He says," My Child I am the key."
He said walk with me forever more
And there will never be another locked door..
The door is open I am alive
I know with God I can survive.
Never again will I be bound
God is the key I have found.
If you find yourself locked in doubt
Get on your knees it's the only way out.
Just ask "God to be your key.
I speak the truth please listen to me.
