When you know for sure you’ve had enough
and your heart has had all it can stand
In your pain remember to smile through the tears
embrace your own heart as a friend.
When the sting of pain and agony
squeezes your heart, takes your breath away
Hold on tightly with all your might
Do not to hopelessness yourself betray.
When the wounding of grief is all you can see
and your mind is filled with endless screams
take this to heart and know for sure
it cannot forever defile your dreams.
In the midst of a thousand sorrows
as you walk through shadows so black
the power of deliverance is in your hands
as you continue to smile and never look back.
The pain must remain with you
but lessens each passing season
just remember to keep smiling
each day find just one small reason.
Healing will certainly come
giving peacefulness through the years
and the light will surely lead you
as you smile through all the tears.
