I confess

I confess...

I can't see You any better than I did yesterday,
God are you there, in those clouds that are in the way


If I'm here and You're there, what is that distance 
between us that seems to grow larger everyday

starving man in the desert I am
wandering to somewhere I don't know

and can't find and don't want
but now I'm heading there and don't want to go.

Please find me, God, draw near to me again
despite of my falling behind

I need You more than ever, and am less
than ready to admit it in my mind


I'd be very grateful, beyond all, if
if You could meet with me today
