Trapped between living and dying, I prayed.
Let me live, dear God, I donít want to die.
Faster than an angel, you gave me aid.
And I discovered to live was to try.

Faced with abandonment, I prayed for strength.
You answered, taking one more love from me,
Keeping their mortal support at armís length.
And I found that becoming strong isnít free.

Embraced within turmoil, I prayed again.
Patience, dear Lord, I need patience this time.
So you gave opportunity times ten.
And I uncovered trials to reach my prime.

Now when living gives me more than my fill,
His calming words come to me, Peace, be still.
