As I stood by my window side,
Looking at the twilight sky,
Tears rolled down my eyes,
As I tried hiding my pain,
That I could not feign!
Life has never been easy for me,
Yet I smiled,
Through that pain I had to endure,
Life was not bliss,
I’m happy I stood strong and tall,
And danced in the stormy rain!
I like to get up after the fall,
Lest my children see my pain.
I look at them and see them smile,
Those little hearts rely on me,
They watch me all the time!
I wipe my tears and look around,
Everyone has a different story.
When I listen to what they have to say,
And count my blessings by the day,
My intense pain goes away!
I like to help the ones in need,
Perhaps, I can understand their pain,
We have come into this world,
To serve others, and not be vain!
The lessons I learned,
Taught me to be
Strong, tolerant and wise,
Time can only heal that pain,
It remains a part of my Life!
