May I Be

May I be bathed in sorrow,

Covered up in grief;

Hopeless for tomorrow,

No sign of sweet relief.

For if my heart can break,

It still has strength to heal.

This world must never take

Our ability to feel.

Strong Love

Some say love will make you weak.

I say they know not what they speak.

My love has most assuredly

Strengthened and empowered me.

Through sleepless nights and hellish days,

Love sustains in all the ways.

When all is gained or kin are lost,

Love holds fast, ignores the cost.

Some see love as sacrifice,

And while that does sound kinda nice,

Know that true love does not take.

Your sacrifice is yours to make.

So whether friend or enemy,

Partner or your family,

Know that love’s a solid way

To change the world a bit today.
