I Must Confess

God (Inspired by)

I must confess,
I sought life apart from you.


I looked for happiness
in people that would
only disappoint me.


So I come to my knees
my face covered in tears
at the realization
only you can bring true joy.


I don't want you to be a stranger;
I want to know you
like you know me.


I want to recognize your face
like the palm of my hand.


I put my trust in you alone
because only you can
give me complete peace.
