Between the sorrows that rain down on me
and the boundless troubles i’m standing on,
there is hope still that comes to save me,
from the anger that seeps and the pain that builds,
between the shadows of my past
and the uncertainty of my future.
i will face them all and be steadfast as i can be.
for i will hold on to the promise i made to thee,
that even though miles lie between us
and our paths rarely cross,
even between the silence that reigns both night and
I will keep the same love I’ve offered you before.
Even when doubts rage and rattle my bones and
I will keep the love you’ve kindled in me,
until the planets and stars align
and guide you back home to me.
