When the darkness opens up like a tomb

  light floods in and I can see

When the fear starts to choke me like a noose

  the angels remind me we are safe

When the sadness starts to drench me like rain

  my children’s laughter sounds and I smile

The road is long and winding

  but the signs glow like beacons

  and my heart and spirit are strong
