Things I Know

I know what it feels like to be overwhelmed
& sad
& busy
& stressed
& hurting
&   e   m   p   t   y

But
I know that no matter how long and dark the night is
there will be a sunrise
I know that we are not here by accident
I don’t believe in magic but I believe in you
and somehow that’s close enough

I know that you are going to be okay
I know that I can’t fix you
Or make any of this better
But I’m not going to give up on you

I know that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel
because I’ve seen it
And I know there will be a day where you’ll see it too
Where you’ll emerge from the depths
and learn how to breathe again
Where the sun will burst through the clouds
A day when you will speak about this in the past tense
and the flames won’t burn your mouth like they used to
Your wounds will become nothing more than faded scars
And you will stand tall
because you are a survivor

I know that day is sitting impatiently on the horizon
Eager to burst forward and greet you with open arms
and I know that when that day comes
I will be waiting for you

I always knew you’d make it
