Somewhere in the world
Time has stopped for someone.
A mourning the heart feels.
Crying is heard, sadness unbearable.
We are made to endure suffering.
Our tears fall. We wipe them.
The storm wrecks. It takes.
We pick up the pieces. We heal.
Turmoil continues each day.
People bear the scars. Misery.
Help continues. Endurance a badge.
The human spirit never gives up.
Don’t feel guilty when joy comes.
Let your heart soar. Laugh.
Rejoice the moment. Smile.
For this is yours to cherish. Love.
Tomorrow might just be a dream.
Tonight a nightmare waiting to unfold.
Joy and happiness are but fleeting.
Nothing is ever constant except God.
