Without Happiness

There's really nothing else I can do
When I'm out here, looking for you
I have been looking out for you, my long-lost dear
But, I fear you took me for granite for many-a-year

There's a giant bump in the road
And I am in need of Your abode
Without happiness and joy,
I'd be this fretful little boy 

I've lived through storms of fright
Just to be right here with you tonight
I've gone through so much hardship and learned to accept life bit by bit
Just to know what it's like to earn your friendship and get a grip of wit

Now, I can no longer zero in on happiness without you here
I raise my weary brow in mere bravery from ear to ear
I am concerned with you and want the best for you too
You aren't around that often and it makes me feel rather blue

You took my heart and made it your own
You shook my inner core and was my backbone
You have shown me oh so many signs and wonders
I rely on His miracles and blessings that never injures

Catastrophe strikes when ignorance is in the picture
I want to know beyond my capable knowledge
My most-longed-for future is almost here, not a blur
I need your loving hand to guide me if I'm on the edge

Shelter me with your shimmering shadows
Comfort me with Your words of wisdom 
Whirl away my wretched woes and higher my lows
I am broken down and becoming numb

I don't know why living life doesn't make sense to me
And once again,
You will shower me with hopes that disappear vainly 

Oh, I'm feeling fine thank you very much
I'm just longing for your heavenly touch
If only you'd understand where I stand
If only you'd lend me your helping hand

Then, you'd come to know who I truly am
I know that I am just this worthless,  roaming lamb
Deliver me from desolation while I dwell in the pit of darkness
I want to be a believer of the Most High, so I can have happiness

I'm glad the worst is over 
There's more yet to come I fear
Will I be left alone unsure? 
I want Your joy to give me cheer

Without happiness,
Who will I be? Who will I become? Will I be on the right track or be led astray? 
Without sadness,
Where will my poetry be? Will I be left to seek a Kingdom that's so far away?
