"Forgive Me"

I wear my shame
as clothing, and
my heart aches because
I have disappointed

My lips were always
free with promises
that i did not keep
and words that were
so meaningless

And now I am afraid
to open my mouth
for fear of what
I may speak

I do not want to
say I love You
and not keep
Your commandments

I do not want to say
that I love You and
not do Your will

So Lord all I can
say at this time
is forgive me
while I pray before
you on bending knees.
