Sometimes, there is this
melody that plays like a remedy
in the distance, reminding me of
hope, rewinding me to happiness.
I have never wanted so much for something
to last, and that’s all I ask for, I don’t need anything
more, so is it okay if you brighten my day and play that
song, see my misery long gone, away like the wind, redeeming
the sinned and broken, stilling the shaken, awakening the sleepers
and calling unto everyone who will ever listen to hear the melody of healing.
Here I am, broken but
not useless, hopeless but
not lost. You can still find me
if you want, I won’t taunt you to do
better, because I know what you give is
the best, better than the rest in some way,
making everything a little more than okay,
chasing away sadness, bringing and shining gladness,
taking fears and drying tears, making everything a little
more than okay. Can you stay one more day? I need you.
There is a beat to my heart
that you play a part in, drumming
my veins, reigning my emotions, tying
your devotions unto me, shaking away misery,
your lovely little tendency of making things better,
without meaning to, you make it a lot better. I don’t
know what I’d do without you, you are my reason, my
melody, my light, you make everything alright, days brighter
and the weight of the world a little lighter. Please don’t go away.
