There is a pain in my soul

loneliness-girl-legs
There is a pain in the pit of my stomach,
It won’t let me sleep
There is a pain in my soul
Because of this never-ending grief

I’ve heard of sexual healing
And physical healing
But no one talks about the soul
And the baggage that it carries 

I am combing my hair
And grooming myself for the day
But I still feel it
The pain just won’t go away

This doesn’t have anything to do with a boy or a man or a heart that’s been broken
It has to do with a life that’s been assaulted
A dream that that’s been deferred
A development that’s been arrested

There is a pain in my soul
A nagging feeling in the distance
Who can help?
Who can relate?

I need a healing, deep down in my soul
Not a miracle that wears off by the time I leave the alter
Not a word that only last me half a week until next Sunday
But a healing touch from the Father

But I need more than one touch,
I need comfort on an ongoing basis
Every day I feel vulnerable
And every day I am tempted to remember

I need a healing touch
Deep down in my soul
What a wretched woman I am.
Who can save me?

I need saving every day,
Moment by moment
Not just when I sin sexually, or curse someone out
But on an ongoing basis

There is a pain in my soul
And I need a healing touch
