It’s not easy to let go;
To not feel the pain in your soul.
It’s not easy to pick yourself up;
To dust off, to take another step.
It’s not easy to smile in pain;
To not feel alone, not feel strain.
It’s not easy to open your heart;
To make again that first start.
It’s not easy to see things anew;
To not feel blinded by few.
It’s not easy to again nurture hope;
To hold once again the end of the rope.
Life makes it difficult sometimes to go on
and yet the yearning for it never stops.
