A broken twig is all I was
I kept on falling beneath
You turned yourself from green to yellow,
Just to be with me.
For every tear
You had oceans ready
No, not to stop them,
But to save them from me.
You Grew thorns all over
While I was just a blooming bud,
Plucking remains way beyond thinkable
Nobody could even touch.
You knew, darker than your eyes
Had been all my nights,
And so you burned, yet with a smile,
To give me the brightest of lights.
Red you were, and so you bled,
Piece by piece, inch by inch
Just to colour, just to hue
My full of wounds and faded lip.
To heal my scars
You risked stealing stars
To wash away my pain,
Under the sun, you challenged rain.
You gathered feathers and built wings
Whenever my steps seemed to get heavier
A soul full of love and a heart full of thanks
Is all I have to give to you, my beloved Saviour
