Broken Here I Stand

Broken here I stand,
Emptied of myself
I have nothing,
Nothing can I be,
That will make you love me,
That will make you cry.
Tears of joy will never fill your eyes,
That will have ever come from me.

I have wronged you,
I have destroyed everything,
Sometimes there is no turning back,
Sometimes forgiveness is not enough.

Broken here I stand,
I stand no reason at all.
I will but fall to my knees,
And be made new.
I will heal but now,
I weep hollow tears of regret and despair.
For without you there is only that.
All I have left is emotion,
And that is but a thorn in my side.

Sometimes forgiveness is not enough.
But sometimes it is.
