I'm thinking about years gone by
I'm thinking about church at midnight
I'm thinking about letting go
I think that might finally be alright
simmering on the years past,
all the loves and losses, all the joys and tribulations,
my heart is happy today
even in the loneliest moments, even in the sad ones,
i can confidently say that i am happy.
i have learned and grown and seen and been opened up
and i'm reminded that its all forward motion.
it has to be.
But this is where we shine
and sometimes love is all my heart can have. it has been a hard year. a long year. an exhausting one and a revealing one.
unexpected-ness around all the corners.
and strength has been pulled from places of defeat
it has been and now we're here remembering.
Then I'm gonna catch my breath
And make it a long December
If we've got nothing left
This could be worth remembering
With a smile upon my face
Silver bells and open fire
And songs we used to sing
One more chance to be inspired
Is what I'm offering if love is not enough
Then stay with me because
The heartache can wait
one more chance to be inspired.
merry christmas to all.
