The Only Healer is Time Green grass, blue skies, Birds soaring on high, I feel the warmth of the sun on my face. As the gentle breeze, Flows over sparkling seas, I know in my head, Mother Nature’s in this place. Though I can see with my eyes, What before me lies, I can’t feel it under my skin. There’s a cloud over me, That no one else can see, The dark valley is drawing me in. No matter how hard, I try to discard, The negative thoughts in my mind. I can’t see the rainbow, Because of the rain, Searching for something I just can’t find. I feel out of control, Something’s stabbing my soul, I want to give myself a good shake. It’s hard to keep smiling, When inside I’m crying, Putting on a brave face for other’s sake. Though I know it won’t last, And soon this cloud will pass, But while in its shadow I’m caught. I can’t see the light, There is no end in sight, Under its spell, I’m lost deep in thought. It’s hard to describe, How I feel inside, Others can’t know unless they’ve been there. But I can recognise, When I look in their eyes, And see the same shadow I share. Though through it all, I’ve learned to walk tall, And grow stronger with each passing day. Some things I can’t change, And in a way it sounds strange, But I’ve grown accustomed to being this way. So the only comfort I can give, Is to others who live, Under a grey cloud like mine. Love and support each other, Until the cloud passes over, Be patient, because the only healer is time.
