At the lowest of moments;
and when times feel rough.
When we feel all hope is gone;
what we have is not enough.
Our spirit has been broken;
family and friends no longer there.
As the rough tides of the ocean;
seem to wash us out to sea;
and we feel no one cares.
When we feel there is no life-line;
and the problems are knee deep.
When faith in everything is gone;
and depression weakens our bones.
Just when we feel there is no hope;
we’re tired inside and out;
hurting deep within our soul.
There is still love on this earth;
people who cherish us and all
we have to offer this world.
Someone somewhere is the
beacon of light that shines
true, gracefully and bright.
If we take a look around us;
there is someone out there;
who is our strong lighthouse
standing by the sea, waiting to
guide us in from the tides that
bind and the troubled waters.
As we look up and around us;
we behold that light, grasp it;
allow it to guide us in to shore.
and we began to stand strong;
as we see our dry bones come alive!
