Finding You

I got lost.
I stumbled.
Walked too far on a strange
and dark road.
I was in anguish.
I had nothing.
Living a life without life.

My voice
had no one to cry out for.
My empty hands had nothing.
I was a portrait
of depression.
so many cold nights i went through...

Almost dying,
without hope;
I see you.
You gave me strength
and renewed my life.
today i confess
I love you

Each day in life
I love you more.
My hands now hold your hands.
My voice
now has someone to call for.
You

I just had to tweak this a little and wondered what you think now? I liked your version but had to alter it a little for myself. I got lost. I stumbled. Walked too far on a strange, dark road. I was in anguish. I had nothing. A life without life. I had no one to cry out for. Empty hands; I was a portrait of depression. My nights were all cold.... Almost dying, without hope, I saw you. You gave me strength and renewed my life. Today I confess I love you Each day in life I love you more. My hands hold your hands. My voice calls to you.
