une fois que

you felt too much once,

feel too much still.

his pain was your pain,

like his pain is my pain,

now and always will.

you cried too much once,

cry too much still.

with hearts crumbling,

souls fading,

we loved too much,

once and always will.




come and sit awhile 

let’s calm our racing hearts 

slow our breathing while

we pace our troubled thoughts 


only certain worries

can I handle today 

close my eyes to stop the fury

put my hands out to pray 


come and sit awhile 

we don’t have to say a word 

let’s just marvel at creation 

let’s wish to be like the birds


can’t handle any anxieties today 

I can’t even deal 

close my eyes to stop the world 

put my hand up to pray 


come and sit awhile 

long-lost friend of mine 

let’s just sit in silence 

until the end of time
