that's what I need
Comforting words
a touch
against the thoughts of all my evil deeds
Comfort me with just the sight
of You
Hug me !
see my burden change
and hurriedly turn light

I ask not for forgiveness
like myself who easily forgive
can turn away from hatred or from harm
a mighty weapon
is forgiveness
but I am privileged and trained
in how to handle heavy arms

Arrogance and pride
is not what I need now
closed doors everywhere I go
Age maybe or failure
a struggling losers final bow
Comfort me and hold me
let me feel that you are close
Comfort only comfort
is what I need the most
