I see you... on the good days and bad
When it hurts... I am holding your hand
When it's futile... 'cause they can't understand
I hear you... when you think no one can
If you're empty... having laid your heart bare
In the quiet... with no words left to share
When it's lonely... and no one seems to care
In this moment... I will find my way there
I'm the message... that you see in the sky
I am rainbows... when you ask for a sign
And the sparrow... living curiously nigh
Near the windows... peering into your life
I am soaring... where the sky meets the sea
Out of darkness... we are finally free
I will help you... get where you're meant to be
Now be mindful... and the path will be seen
You chose me... just as I once chose you
To learn lessons... and find our way through
It’s your turn now… to live life anew
Lean into the love… your heart; your truth.
I wasn't ready
And neither were you
Our wounds still open
The grieving not through.
A meeting of hearts
Both healing yet raw
Holding our breath
To avoid the pitfalls.
I looked at you smiling
Attempting to free
The lighthearted one
That you asked me to be.
It had to, I know
I'd hoped for connection
In spite of it though.
Our talk, it stayed small
And walls straight and tall
Left no room for comfort
Or closeness at all.
Camped on my island
The feeling was strong
That it was too much
And I didn't belong.
I sensed my presence
Was painful for you
As was seeing her face
When I entered the room.
Wish I wasn't broken
Or bleeding or blue
I want to be light
And easy for you.
This is my journey
And though it won't be
The one you have planned
It is just right for me.
So in our sweet time
We'll remember the love
That brought us together
Is waiting above.
She won't let us down
And hears when we cry
Now closer than ever
No need for goodbye.
Will you return to hold my hand
I need your peace to understand
cause my heart aches with words unsaid
racing through my troubled head
I long to hear your quiet voice
but it's not a choice
Few know about the bond we share
and how you helped to fuse the tear
you validated what I knew
the same truth that tormented you
This loss has left a gaping hole
but they can't kill your ardent soul
You still live on to teach and guide
and help me from the other side
I'll stay strong to shine our light
until it's time to reunite
and love will find a way to mend
this brokenness inside... again
