Finding Oneself Under The Light Of God

Dear Child,
please do not cry?
You are in my thoughts here,
I hear every tear that falls,
smile now.

lift up your eyes,
the beauty of Heaven
awaits your open blurry gaze,
be free.

I am
Your Lord thy God,
wipe away your sorrow,
your Father's speaking now to you.
Dance life.

Have faith,
listen to love,
its tune is blessed power,
fill your spirit and laugh out loud,
shine bright.

My breath
will comfort you,
keep you warm when in need,
embrace the light of inwardness,
find you!

Dear Child,
lift up your eyes,
wipe away your sorrow,
fill your spirit and laugh out loud,
find you!
