When this double vision ends and I see clearly again, will I be any better off and make sense of life?
When I feel that my existence seems like that of a spectator, will I ever become a participant?
When the cold of winter and loneliness of the holidays overwhelm me, will I cry myself to sleep?
When faith flickers like a dying candle, what will become of me? Will I have mattered to anyone?
I will be better off, and so will others, once I regain clarity, and I will understand my life’s purpose.
I am already a participant, I just need a little encouragement to help me understand this truth.
I will cry no longer-even though I needed to for a moment-because joy is just around the corner.
I will light another candle-thus keeping my faith-for my life matters very much. It matters to those who love me and to those who are yet to know me; to the lost who need me and to those who have helped me; to the sojourner who has double vision and to the blind who can’t see at all. No more tears, no more despair, and no more loneliness for there is One who loves me just as I am. Prince of Peace come join me now and help me to show others the way.
