Why aren’t you asleep?
Lord, clouding my mind are promises I don’t keepring.jpgring.jpg
As the pain of guilt continues to linger
I look at my hand & take the ring off my finger
A symbol of the vow that I once made
Two years later emotions start to fade
Lord, this ring
With You i plan to leave it
Until with all my heart I can say I mean it 
Please don’t worry
For in a special place will I tuck it away
Hoping that I’ll choose again to wear it someday
I closed my eyes
We were standing at the cross
Now rugged, aged & covered with dross
As I opened my fist to see why it hurt
Clenched in my hand was gravel & dirt
In Yours,
There lay that precious band 
Paid with blood, my sin’s demand.
You spoke 
“With this ring, had I thee wed”
“Once for all, I swore then bled” 
And there on my finger, how it sparkled and shined
As You told me once more that it was still mine 
“Real love,” You said, “is much more than a feeling
See, LOVE, my child… it is not fleeting
And, bride of mine, just like this ring…
I am not leaving!”
