TITLE: Words Of Comfort

I wrote this for my aunt whose husband of 50 years passed away. She cried with me for about four hours and I wanted so badly to find just any words that would help her and I found none. I then went home and wrote everything I wanted to say to her, but no matter how I looked at it, it spoke the sad truth that words like that just don't exist in our times of great sorrow.
Words Of Comfort


If there were words,most divine,
That'd make sorrow disappear,
Words of comfort, so sublime;
A brighter tomorrow feels so near.

If there was peace that words could bring,
Make burdens cease and end death's sting;
If they could stop your suffering,

I would speak them out for you.

But here's the clouds and here's the rain,
Here's the darkness, here's the pain;
And there's nothing that I can say

That would bring your loved ones back,
That could fill this empty gap.
No,I can't take the hurt away.


If there were words to be found,
Some special words just for you,
That could bring the sun around
And would make all your skies blue;

Oh, I'd be searching far and wide,
And I'd be looking deep inside,
There's just no way those words could hide.

I would seak them out for you.

But here's the clouds and here's the rain,
Here's the darkness, here's the pain;
A feeling you think no one shares.

When you think the words aren't there,
Sick of searching everywhere,
I promise,somebody cares.


At another funeral,
Visiting another grave,
Death never felt natural,
Doesn't matter what they say.

Words of comfort can't ease the ache;
Words of comfort can't stop heart break.
No, there's just way too much to take....

Here's the clouds and here's the rain,
Here's the darkness, here's the pain;
And you think that no one's there.

Feels like it'll last forever,
Almost too much to endeavor,
To try and make yourself bear.


But through the clouds and through the rain,
Through the darkness, through the pain;
He endures with you there.

No,this doesn't last forever.
There's a God and He would never
Give you more than you can bear.
