In an instant life can change, its so sudden as I’m rearranged.
My upside down has made me frown. It’s all just turned me round and round!
As I wallow in shades of grey, my doubts explode and I’m a wraith.
I drift as if I live as dead, and wonder why my heart has dread.
When in that vague and grey abyss, I cry with wails that echo loud.
I still can hear a whisper faint, that hints a song can break my dread.
The tune so faint still never goes. It warms this heart because it knows .
That song it heals a wounded place and somehow grants me peace and bread.
I’m not alone; I never was. I’m softened by caress’s love.
When ere I look to catch that brush – I sense faint hints of things above.
I’m slowly learning I think to trust, In one who hopes for what I yearn.
The cry to flee it feels so strong, but when I trust, its then I learn.
