Perhaps sometimes you wonder
When life seems misery and pain
How do you rise to greet the morning
Or begin to smile again?
Where do you find the strength to go on
With dear ones so cruelly lost?
How can you bear to keep your hearts open
When to love incurs such cost?
Yet you must continue to live
For the sake of all those you hold dear.
And you must continue to love
And so let others draw near.....
For it is in that loving we are saved
From both bitterness and hate
Revenge never the answer,
Though justice appears to wait....
You are not expected to forgive,
Much less to ever forget.
But don't let clouds of darkness
Keep your world from turning yet.
You must carry on daily
With the human will to survive,
But try to keep your hearts open
So that you truly feel alive.....
For love gives life its purpose
Is the salve to every pain,
Redresses the balance against all evil
Gives hope and renewal again.....
You need to be strong,have courage.
Try to face each brand new day
With FAITH that right will triumph
And that LOVE will find the way-
And if you can't deal with your anger
Try to hand it to God above.
He can replace it with something higher
By showing the way to HIS LOVE.
I wrote this at the request of someone who has friends in
America who lost somebody in the 9/11 tragedy.Maybe
it might help others in a similar situation.That's why I
share it with you now.
