For the time when the lights go off
And there is only darkness ahead,
He said He’ll build me a road
With a ray of light falling on each step.
When there is rain and there is storm
And there is just Water all around,
He said He’ll build me a ship
And that He won’t let me drown.
When there is hatred and criticism
And I can hear only noises all around,
He said He’ll sing me to sleep
With Silence as the only sound.
When there is hot and there is heat
And the air is oxygen deprived,
I asked if He would plant me a tree
He said that He’ll grow a whole forest by my side.
When there is doubt and distrust
And the truth is lost from my life
He said He’ll enlighten my soul,
He’ll join my broken pieces and make me a whole.
When there is hurt and there is pain
And the tears fall from the eyes,
He said He’ll move His hand through my forehead
And I’d go into dreams for the night.
When mistakes are too many to count
And the ‘self’ is too guilty to hide,
He said He’ll forgive me for my faults
And to the correct path, to me He will guide.
When I am tired and exhausted
And haven’t rested my head for a while,
He said He’ll take me to the terrace
And we would watch the starry sky.
When I’ve lost everything
And feel like giving up on life,
He said He’ll shine me a Sun
In the morning, when I could march on the beats of his fife.
He said He’ll carry me
When it becomes too difficult to hold everything on the inside,
Said He will love me so much
And will fill all the empty spaces in my life.
