If you’re hurting, and so many of us do
Christmas especially just makes the heart raw,
The heavy grief is like a freight train hurtling towards you.
There are spirits all around us; they also lived this beautiful and so often painful life.
You can believe, go ahead and grab the faith, a lifeline for a sinking ship,
Spirits walk with us even though we don’t see,
They hold our hands and dry our tears,
Listen for a gentle whisper, “So much peace now that I’m free!”
This is your precious life; do not wish your fleeting days away,
find solace in understanding that we won’t always understand.
Make still your thoughts and close your eyes,
Feel that warmth, a sweet breath on your skin?
Smile now, you’re not alone,
Your comforting angel will hold you when you cry.
