Fading Grace

September 29,2012
--------------------------

I wish, there was something more I could do
My heart aches at the sight of you-
so lost-so hurt sadness pouring from your eyes
I wish I could help, I wish I could stop the cries
But I don't know what to do,
So I'll Just do what I do best-let you know I'm here for you
If only words weren't so meaningless
If only I could make you hurt less
Your golden, shining light dimming-
Giving way to the darkness
I wish there was a way I could bring back your light-your happiness
But Grace is fading fast
Buried beneath the toils of the past
If I could change time-make it better
Oh if I could just do so much more
Believe me when I say I would
If i could ease your heartache
If I could mend the broken, shattered pieces
Tell me if there's a way to fix the scars
Because I'll do what I must
I'll do whatever, all for you
I open myself, ready to give you my all
To share what light I have
So we can both see our way out of the dark
And if Grace should fall, Grace should fade
Then in the darkness I will hold onto you
So you can still stand
So you will not fall
And together we can make our way through the darkness
Grace is fading fast
Fading fast
Hold onto what we can, while we can
For it's unknown how long it will last
Grasp onto the rope, the light-the fading Grace
Do not worry, I will hold you up
I will hold you until your warming light
Is found more and shines upon my face
And then, I still, will hold you up
But Grace is fading fast
Will we make it?
Will we survive the darkness?
You shall survive, I will make certain you do
No matter what I need to do
I will make certain your grace never leaves you
Even if I should falter and fall
If I should crack and break
Just leave me and continue on your way
Weary and torn do not let your light go
Grace is fading fast
Go, keep moving until you have finally passed your past
