Alone We Stand

Alone we stand
Reaching for an outstretched hand
Longing for a comforting embrace
Longing for an impossible grace.

Alone we stand
Reaching for a shoreline, for land
Longing for a ladder of stars
Longing for the healing of scars.

Alone we stand
Reaching for the one that can,
Longing for outstanding mercy
Longing for you...

Alone we stand
Looking to you
Reaching for you
Longing for you. 

The End
