Fighting Temptation

This guilt I feel consumes me 
I want to let it out 
But I'm terrorfied of the consequences... 
I gave into temptation 
And now I pay the price... 
I'm so sorry for what I've done 
I pray that this isn't the end 
I pray that you can forgive me 
And we can still have our happily ever after... 
One single thought runs through my head 
Over and over again... 
I know what I need to do 
To finally get peace of mind 
But once again I'm consumed with fear... 
Fear of what you'll think 
Fear of what you'll do - what this will mean 
I messed up! That's all there is to it! 
And all I can say is 
I'm so deeply, deeply sorry! 
God was testing me 
And I failed horribly! 
Now I'm living in regret 
I'm completely stuck! 
Show me where to go from here 
Tell me what I'm suppose to do now... 
How do I make this right? 
I'm sorry! I'm so sorry! I'm so deeply sorry! 
For this incredibly stupid thing I've done 
Now I'm at your mercy... 
I can only hope and pray 
That you can forgive me 
Please stay here with me, 
Please dont run away

    What a sad song! A testimony to being human...Forgive yourself first so you will be strong if he doesn't. There will be another sunrise either way. Be strong! Cynthia
