Alive (Jane)

She found she was walking on the ground of a one way street And she cried when she looked in the eye of the people she met There was no blood there was no secret power When she counted the cost of all she'd lost From her ivory tower She said, "I have courage and I have grace A kind of wisdom and a certain faith But it's all I can manage To keep this place of mine Alive, alive She kept all the tears she wept in a small container So when they asked for proof of what she called her truth she said, "It couldn't be plainer". She told them, "You give me this name I carry your pain , I do your dying for you But there's a chance I'll bleed or dare to need A thread of life to cling to". She said, "I have courage and I have grace A kind of wisdom and a certain faith But it's all I can manage To keep this place of mine Alive, alive All I do is pray
