Needing Healing

Father, forgive, I cry — 
my self-centeredness, offensive words, 
pain and grief I caused, 
times I strayed, rebelled, disobeyed. 
With each admission I bow more low 
until  the heart within me breaks.
Patient. Dark.  I wait.
Then the Savior with gentle healing touch
reaches tenderly down and lifts me up.
