I Remember


(I)

Here I am
Laying awake again
Spreading it all
Remembering home

I lost my faith
Failed the mountain climb
Desperate again
Praying for home

I remember…

The dreams I see
Pictures in grey and red
The silence of my past
Speaking through me

The dawn speaks loud
I cannot hear my cry
The path I walk
Away from home

I remember…
I remember…
Above the beats of hope
Above the drums of war
Above the touch of pain

I remember…
I remember…
The little boy who returned home

Lord, you’re my everything
Lord, I want you to be
Jesus, lead me home
Touch me again
Oh Lord, one more time

(II)

Where’s the hand
To draw me near?
Where’s the light?
Where’s the tunnel?

It’s Sunday
And I’m almost lost
Find me here
Quiet my soul

I remember…

The lies I tell
Myself at midnight’s dawn
Spreading it all
Surrending it all

Drive me there
My hand’s failed my wheel
Arms stretched wide
Praying to be home

I remember…
I remember…
Above the beats of hope
Above the drums of war
Above the touch of pain

Lord, you’re my everything
Lord, I want you to be
Jesus, lead me home
Touch me again
Oh Lord, one more time

Lord, I remember
Lord, take me home.

About Iwundu Wisdom

Iwundu Wisdom is an avid believer in going against the norm and the concept of never giving up. He loves to reflect and represent the most natural circumstances in his narrative. His roving persona occasionally graces the notion of the great disparity of individual achievement in relation to environment, and so he thinks...and thinks. When he's not staring at the blinking cursor, he's pulling at the strings of a guitar. Or just sitting and thinking about this yawning gape called life.

    Beautifully put into words! You gave the words a wonderful meaning altogether. I wrote a few poems. I hope you read them and tell me what you think. English is not my native language but I aim to be better at writing in English 🙂
