My Vow

I made a vow to myself tonight

Hoping it will last throughout my life

That in me I have the strength to fight

Wipe away the pain, sorrow and negativity

It's lingering does more bad than good

The Lord, I trust knows what will become of me

Trust in Him

Above all else

He knows the way

He knows my heart

He's the light

Crowdsourcing Our Grief: Healing through a Social Media Art Project

Sometimes, when the grief gets particularly bad, it seems like the only way out is through magic. 


I cry myself to sleep

Behind closed doors I weep

But I make it day by day

God you have showed me the way

I feel the pain, hurt & sorrow

Because of You, I live for tomorrow

Precious Child

Beautiful song: A song about the relationship between life and death.
