Distant


I wanna see Your face
But I don’t

I wanna hear Your voice
But I don’t

I wanna feel Your touch
But I don’t

I wanna feel the Spirit
But I don’t

I wanna see Your miracles
But I don’t

I wanna have hope
But I don’t

I wanna have peace
But I don’t

I wanna feel Your love
But I don’t

I know You are there
I know You haven’t moved

I know I’m the one who left
I know I’m the one that ran

I am so distant from You

So what now?
