Sometimes Falling Away... - Poem by Shelley L Baxter

Her eyes are closed But shes not asleep
Her eyes are closed God's answers she seeks.
She opens her eyes But still she is pained
She opens her eyes Good Lord to the shame.

Sometimes falling away She don't know what to do
Sometimes falling away The Lord pulls her through.
Back in the world To a familar state
Back in the world To the old ways she hates.

Knows shes your child She has washed her soul
Knows shes your child Once made her whole.
Under the water Accepting your love...
Under the water Blessings rain from above.

Offers prayer to the Lord, the lord takes her hand
Offers prayer to the Lord, by her side he will stand.
Her troubled ways No longer in view...
Her troubled ways she will no longer pursue.

Know it's not easy but the Lord will provide.
Know it's not easy Sometimes tears in her eyes...
Her eyes are closed, but she is fully aware!
Her eyes are closed.Gods word she will share.
