How you overcome loss and pain And the desire for social retreat?
How do you explain to those you know The pretence that you have to project?
How do you smile when expected to But your facial muscles object?
How do you trust a God you once knew Or the power of goodness and prayer?
Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby, Then in your heart there will always be a part of me. To lose that which means the most to us is a lesson in helplessness and humility and survival. I was led by my fellow sufferers, those I loved and those who had also endured irredeemable losses, to find reasons to go on.
This is one of them: How do you describe an empty heart Or a mind that will not sleep?I promised I would never leave you, And you should always know, wherever you may go, No matter where you are, I will never be far away.
