As you travel through your desolate day
feeling as though the world is all pain
and no sun will ever appear in your world.
Remember all the people who think of you
and feel your pain in their own hearts
who want to shield you from the world
with one warming embrace.
Who long with their entire being
to be the light in your life of shadows.
People who feel helpless because no matter what
they are not miracle workers who can fix the world.
People who only have a small glimmer of hope to offer
which is an inadequate amount for those who need so much.
But they relentlessly try their best and give all they can
even though they know it will never ever be enough,
but their thoughts are always with you
and sometimes those prayers are strong enough
to make a difference.
