" Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are 'patches of godlight' in the woods of our experience."

My Cloudy Days, Part 2

The one thing I was sure of.
The one thing I knew.
It too seems far away,
Lost in my cloudy days.
Then I wonder,
How? How can I be this?
Lord, You were mistaken
When You called me!
I don't meet the standards.
I won't measure up!
I should just forget it.
I'll attempt something else.

When will the clouds pass away?
When will my night turn to day?
I know He cares,
And I do trust Him.
But it's hard to wait,
It's hard to hope
When you don't see any light.
My eyes are dry,
But the tears still come.
When will it end?
When will the valley be over?

With each cloudy day,
My heart hardens more.
I don't want to love.
I don't want to care!
I've given myself before,
I gave too much....
