Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Hope

Your loneliness was palpable 
Bitter regret on my tongue
From all the lessons learned but forgotten
All the forever’s that never happened
I know I was not the salve you wanted
A poor substitute for the lost soul of your dreams
Instead of releasing you, I made it about me
And it was never about me
Yet to forgive myself has been the hardest lesson of all
The beauty in forgiveness is my hope for the future
So I am sorry

I release you

I release myself

You may be feeling very small and insignificant right now, powerless even
You matter and you have a voice
Don’t give up hope
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up…

Tiny golden jewels
Sparkle in cold winter light
Wild beach rose

Your time to blossom will come
Spring thaw around the corner
