What can I say to ease your sorrow? In a lifetime of words I’ve spoken…how do I find the right ones…
to ease a heart that’s broken?

When I see that you are hurting…that you’re struggling
know this to be true…
Because I know you…admire you…love you…
my heart is breaking too.

I am struggling with how to act…knowing I can’t make your pain go away.
I’m struggling knowing what to do….finding the right words to say.

I know the right words at the right time
might soothe your heart and brighten your day. 
While the right words at the wrong time
will fall like the first snow of winter and quickly melt away.

I am also struggling because it’s often hard to determine…often hard to see
exactly when the right time is…exactly what the right words might be.

With that in mind…I offer these words today…it’s all that I can do…
Read them now if you are ready…
or wait till the time is right for you.

Know that just like other setbacks you have faced 
you will emerge from this one…it’s true!
for scars are merely a part of life…and can be beautiful too. 

Know that as sad as you are there will come a time…
only you know where…or when…
you will hurt a little less…
smile a little more 
and find your happiness again.

Know that as long as I am living …through your sunshines and your rains
I will rejoice in all your joys…I will share in all your pains. 

And finally, no matter what happens to you in life…
let this in your heart be known…
as long as I am living…
you will never be alone.
