This is dedicated to two of my friends who are going through tough times and also for all those who need encouragement. For JC and JF: Please remember: Your heart is big and your spirit is even bigger.
When the chips are down and you’re feeling low
When the tide turns and you’re being towed
When the world is against you and your spirit burns
When you hit rock bottom and there’s nowhere to turn
Look deep within you to draw from your soul
Seek strength and solace and make it your goal
To rise above the hurt, pain and tears
And face the world despite your fears
This is the step and the leap you will take
To heal your broken spirit and the heart break
Remember, the rainbow in its glorious hues
Only after rain and storm, appears on cue
To renew your spirit and grace the skies
While you, like the mythical Phoenix, will rise
