Light will return to our lives
The light beyond the storm of sadness
Beyond the horizon a light will be found,
For this darkness cannot endure forever.
There may be no light just here, looking around,
But it will come, like a change in the weather.
There is no rainstorm that can last a lifetime,
Beyond the storms far horizon, light prevails.
Eventually the bells for clear skies, will chime,
All we need to do is to endure all the gales.
I can see no light there yet for tomorrow,
But I can remember it lived in my past.
So there will be an end to all this dark sorrow,
For it tells me that this darkness cannot last.
So how do we survive this darkness just here?
How can we believe there will be light once more?
Can we make this storm of sadness disappear?
Can we make the world the way it was before?
There is no going back, so let’s just turn around,
Let’s look forward, and with this darkness endure.
Within ourselves, an inner light can be found,
With each other, we can look for a cure.
This darkness will end, but what will we all find?
If we do nothing then the storm would have won.
But if we can reach out and work with one mind,
Then a better world will be seen with the sun.
