Day 18 What to Say?

Now I realize that some of you might not know what to say
And I wanted to assure you that it’s totally ok
You don’t need to worry that your words might come out wrong
Anything you write to me sounds just like a song
You might think I’m kidding – I promise I am not
In times like these what matters really is the thought
And those thoughts have flown in from all 4 corners of the earth
As each new one lands a part of me has a rebirth
And the musketeers’ old motto starts ringing in my ears
One for all and all for one; there is no good cause to fear

So I am here for you just as you are here for me
And somehow we’ll make it through this minor travesty
And yes it really is a small thing; at least, I’m trying to think that way
After all, we’re all still here and it is a brand new day

God knows I get impatient
And that I want this all to end
Get back to the stage, back to my family and friends
While it’s true that God’s perfect timing is not mine
I am learning that His peace is more than perfect all the time
And maybe that is what we’re all really after in the end:
Peace that passeth understanding; the kind we pass as friends
