I Wish

by Jeanarre M. Davis

I wish, I wish, I wish
Lord please
Hear my pleas
I beg of you on these bended 
And these broken knees
Almost is here 
Almost is gone
And almost will never come

Not soon enough so it seems
I wish, I wish, I wish
Lord please
Hear me as I pray
Open-hearted for new and the same
Every night and as the sun rises
And kisses my eyelids

Softly I whisper
I wish, I wish, I wish
Lord please
Hear my cries
Storm down and wash clean my eyes
My soul, my body and spirit 
Baptize me so that I am no longer

So sure
Lord please
Hear me
Child of you
Who knows more than the way to
Help and move through
Yet I grow tired
Yet I grow weak
Only strong enough to part my lips and speak

Up and speak out
I plead
I pray
I cry
Out to you
Who has always been there
Though it may seem that I have forgotten
And at times I might have
Yet I remember you 
Each time I was caught in mid air
Not a net there
Any time now or before
Each time there much more 
To prove 
That all one needs is faith in you

No…no…no worries
To block me
Or lock me away because where ever I sit
Wherever I fall, stumble, or just drop
From exhaustion, aliment, false hope
You helped me to cope 
Cut through the rope
And climb over the wall 
When I believed I’d lost it all

I wish, I wish, I wish
Lord Jesus 
You hear us
