Relief from grief doesn’t come in a flash;
when your heart is decimated like shattered glass.
Broken pieces lie scattered all around;
you’re convinced your sanity will never again be found.
You’re sad, you’re mad, you wanna lash out.
You’re depressed, you’re down, you wanna cash out.
Then, all at once, a thought comes your way;
after you have grieved day after day.
The darkness parts and the light seeps in.
Your heart begins to feel again.
Ever so slowly you realize;
the fears you had were fantasized.
You sense a presence not felt before
and feel your spirit begin to soar.
A voice resounds within your head;
the fears that bound you have now all fled.
The whisper you’re hearing tells you this,
yes, a caring voice that you cannot dismiss:
“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Light
I am thy God, thy soul’s delight!”
