Take courage my friends
The journey we are will have it’s ups and downs
To get up from a tough challenge and know God’s grace abounds
We can get up and see what adventure the day lends.
May we have experienced negative things
The answer is yes and varies with everyone
Grieving is healthy as we go threw the dark reaching for the sun
With the hope that tomorrow will bring good things.
Let us reach out to those who care
And listen when people need a ear
Living life without judgement and fear
Be of a kind heart and fair.
There is no timetable for grief
When challenges come I will be their for family or friends
And I know my Father in Heaven showers mercy that He lends
While others will be kind, loving which will be a relief.
Pushing through fear is not a easy feat
To take courage is a witness to others
Sometimes this is just asking for help today
May you find a listening un critical ear I pray
You are a hero my sister and brother.
You all have so much to give
Others have so much to learn from you
Sharing the darkness and light and see it through
Taking courage, to love and to care and truly live.
