What God Took From You

What words God took from you

I will take from Him

What words God would not let you use

I will use in your stead

What God has done to you

I will negate through my actions

What ghosts trail behind you

I will distract

What benefactors support you

I will befriend

Before we decay

I will carve your name in stone

And that which you never could say

Only centuries of water will wash away
