If life took from me the peace
That is needed in my heart,
What would it be replaced with
To fall upon my path.
If life took away the innocence
I knew as a little girl,
What shall dwell inside me now
Given by the world.
If the sunshine left the sky
And the skies all turned to grey,
Is there somewhere I could go
To escape the chilling rain.
If there are no stars to count
For I cannot lift my eye,
Will life bring me only sadness
Even in the morning light.
Then all that's left are miracles
As I cannot struggle anymore,
Is there a chance all that was taken
Was not the real at all.
What if I search elsewhere
Where I haven't been before,
Then will I find a serene garden glade
That matters all the more.
Could there be a reality
Beyond this one I see
Where a sure peace and joy is found
And where my soul is free.
Could I then begin to thank the Lord
For everything life took,
So that I would have to find new sight
To take another look.

"Whether you turn to the right or to the left,
your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying;
 "This is the way...walk in it"
~ Isaiah 30:21 ~
