I would love to say something resonating
About what it is to turn your life around,
As though by revealing the secret of finding inner peace
It is easy to steer others on a better path.
I could talk about patience, and waiting,
How the right thing at the right time
Will sprout up without warning
To block what would have been your road to destruction
But instead leads you to an afternoon amongst wildflowers.
I could say, I've been there, I know your sorrow,
I know the relentless rain of dark clouds
And the days when even the air is made of lead,
And that something unexpected will be there
To take the burden from your back
So quickly that at first,
You won't even know it's gone.
These are hollow words
When the world feels shallow.
And I don't have the syllables for anything profound.
What I do know is the only truth there will ever be.
You are not alone.
In a sea of voices calling out for something better
We are a chorus line against sorrow,
A lullaby to sleep to,
And a rousing shanty sailing towards better days.
There is hope.
There is a new morning.
There is sunlight ahead.
And if you're with me to greet it even though we have never met,
Then you, and me, and everyone
Who sees the best in this world
Gets to feel that warmth on our faces.
We will know lightness again.
