Room for pain

There is room for pain.
As there is for joy.

There is room for pain,
As there is for hope.

There is room for pain,
As there is for love.

There is room for pain,
As there is for growth.

Make room for pain,
When kindness doesn't remain in your heart.

Make room for pain.
When good memories are blurred.

Make room for pain,
When your dark window stares you in the face.

Make room for pain,
When you can't hum your favorite song.

Make room for pain,
When a book becomes your only refuge.

Make room for pain,
When your voice has become brittle.

Make room for pain,
When your eyes won't connect to the sky.

Make room for pain,
When you can't see yourself in a friend.

Make room for pain,
When you cannot recognize the mask you are wearing.

Make room for pain,
You will find yourself again.
