You Saved Me Poem by Hamza Obeng

You Saved Me

I saw a bright light

Just as all seemed lost

I stretched forth my hands

Hoping to get a grip of myself

My efforts were in vain

For even though i could see the light, I couldn't reach for it

But you just came from nowhere

Just to lend me a helping hand

Yes indeed, YOU saved me! !

As I passed through

I never thought of YOU

I ran all around

I did all YOU told me not to

Eventually I became an outlaw

Until fate caught up with me

Then I realized that I had failed

But in the midst of the storm, YOU stood by me

Truly, YOU saved me! !

My destiny began to change

My body became weak

My soul could no longer endure

The pain in my heart grew stronger

All because I failed

I felt this was the beginning of the end

I felt as though I was being tortured

I never for once remembered YOU

Yet still, YOU saved me! !

My last days I will dedicate to YOU

My house will now be YOUR temple

I will find a way to make it up to YOU

I will strive just to do as YOU wish

For this might be the last chance I have

Not to say I am repaying YOU

But just to show gratitude cos YOU saved me! !
