Is There One Who Knows My Heart?

by Pernell Rodocker

I sit on the patio of a home not mine.
A vision one never dreams of.
Bound to a chair 'till the end of time.
Wanting the freedom as a dove.
The sun is bright and warm today.
The wind whistles gently through the trees.
My heart full of hopes is guiding my way.
Can someone listen to me please?
Take a breath full and refreshing,
A wish that soon will not be.
A merry tune the birds do sing,
Home I'll be going with He.
Children laughing as they play,
While skipping down the leafy lane.
Listen all to what I say,
Living your life for Him is gain.
You look at me, and things you ask,
Not giving me time to reply.
This look upon my face a mask.
To you, how long 'till I die.
If I could tell His truth to you,
You'd see me differently.
You'd learn of love and what to do.
How happy you would be!
The memories I have keep me company,
His warmth and love deep inside.
I'm full of joy, can't you see?
For in Him I do abide.
Franticly you all surround me,
But I'm no longer there.
With Him is where I am you see,
No burdens do I bare.
If I could leave you just one word,
It would be the Lord my Jesus.
I hope that what I've said you've heard,
He's the one that heals and frees us.
