as i lay dying » Beneath the Encasing of Ashes » Behind Me Lies Another Fallen Soldier


I want to bring You all that is in my heart

I want to bring You my everything

But I've failed You so many times

How can I stand here before You

When I begin to steal what only belongs to You?

I am able to bring You nothing that isn't already Yours

I am so ashamed of what I ever called my own.

Take what I have, take these broken remains.

What can I give to You that You don't already deserve?

You laid down Your life when I refused to give mine
