When my heart has been troubled
And my soul shattered too,
Sometimes words can pierce the darkness
To help you see what is true.
There are times no words can say it:
All the pain that’s locked inside,
Or the tears that flow forever,
That desperately you try to hide.
All you see behind are losses
And the things you’ll never have.
Disappointment brings forth wounds,
That Badly need a healing salve.
Rarely, comes along a person
Who can understand your heart,
And the conflicts deep within
That can tear your soul apart.
But she sits down beside you,
Feels the awful pain you feel,
And just by her calming presence,
You know you can begin to heal.
A single touch can light the darkness,
Bind the wounds that came before,
And the healing in your soul
Causes you to trust, some more
