ACL

During the night I lie awake and pray;

The moment is something I won’t forget,

Will the pain today ever go away?

 

The process leaves me in complete dismay,

The year consisted of my tears and sweat,

During the night I lie awake and pray.

 

I need patience, it’s hard to wait to play,

Such injury messes with your mind-set,

Will the pain today ever go away?

 

You can make a strong comeback others say,

For the team I used to be an asset,

During the night I lie awake and pray:

 

Please Lord help me, for I am not okay,

I wonder if I’m ready to play yet,

Will the pain today ever go away?

 

No matter what, my spirit can outweigh,

Playing on the field can be such a threat;

During the night I lie awake and pray,

Will the pain today ever go away?
