Lift Me (Annette Redmond Walters - Lafayette, LA)

Look into my eyes
tell me what you see
Look beneath the lies
tell me what will be
Listen to my cries
help me off my knees
Listen to my "whys"
help me find the key 
Lift me to the skies 
teach me how to flee
Lift me from the ties 
teach me to be free

Look into my fears 
tell me what is real 
Look beneath my tears 
tell me how to deal 
Listen while I'm here
help me to reveal 
Listen while I'm near
help me to be healed
Lift me from the smear 
teach me what to seal
Lift me and appear
teach me how to feel
