One day you will forgive yourself
One day you will look at your scars and have no regrets
The day is coming when those scars will fade
When all the pain of yesterday will be nothing but a distant memory
One day you’ll learn that sorrow paved a way
That day you’ll find pain was the only catalyst to tell your story
One day you will rise, above the dust you’ve been buried in
That day you’ll see that tears are the windows of your eyes
That day you will learn that life is still a mystery
One day you’ll forgive yourself, and you’ll learn to let the past go
I can see that day is not today
So cry my darling, but just for a moment; allow yourself to cry
