Crisis in my heart
I felt it from the start
It’s hard to retain
Peace, I need to begin again

Emotions flowing over
Need to run for cover
The storm has started
And I have darted

My mind has gone
So weak, and forlorn
Need my strength back
And that is what I lack

Bring it back to me now
I’m wondering, how?
To get my soul up high
Way up to the sky

I need not aim so high
I must have a limit, my oh my
Else it would squish me
Then, what would I be?

To come back to you
Not in pieces, of two
Be whole once more
The person I was before

Crisis in my heart
Recovery is an art
It is my bane
Peace, has begun, again.
