Forgive me oh lord


I come before your presence,
To renounce my absence,
From your everlasting mercy,
To tell a tale about my sin,

The sweet sin in my memory,
The stench of it that I loved,
That good evil of my enemy,
Its what I've seen and loved,

Those dark days,
That took my heart away,
That dark uneven way,
That I took and walked away,

I've sinned from birth,
And every morn I woke up to,
Maybe I'll sin to death,
But I saw the light you pulled me to,

Your forgiveness I can never replace.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
