Moving On

I was told it was through, I was told it was done
Not a second to think of what had become
Walking through fire, unaware of the flame
Was it so easy to forget - then turn all the blame?

You stole a piece of all I hold dear
It’s hard to believe, there’s not much left to fear
But questions unanswered, frustrations, unease
The enemy stalks us like an infectious disease

We convince ourselves we are just letting this go
But feelings left buried, keep stewing below
While safe in the arms of the ones we hold dear
Are we still quick to be honest and clear?

Feelings and urges sit at the bottom of my soul
Excitement, selfishness, also lack of self-control
We’ve been down this long road – won’t you kindly give up?
I’m not ready to lie down and watch this family break up

I was told it was done, I was told it was through
Then why are you so curious, if all that is true?
Please bring it before God, and see it’s not right
It’s like the Garden of Eden when Eve took that bite

Please stay away – let it go, let it be
Please let Him heal us, so we can all see
God’s mercy and goodness, abundantly shown
Giving God all the glory in how much we’ve all grown
