In Your Shoes
I know what you are going through,
I’ve been there, in your shoes.
The feeling was so frightening,
not one that I would choose.
Life leads us down some rugged paths,
decisions not well made.
The pain we live with afterwards,
a price that must be paid.
Who said it would be comfortable,
this life we’re given to live.
No pain, no gain, we often hear,
we sorrow, we forgive.
I know it doesn’t feel like gain,
this turmoil you are in.
But once the waves wash over you,
the healing will begin.
Stand fast the tide is changing soon,
a new moon’s overhead.
You’ll soon see silver linings as,
you gaze out from your dread.
So calm your heart, I know your pain;
there’s one thing I can do.
I’ll stand beside you as you walk,
and give a hug or two.
I’m here if you should need a guide,
in all you’re going through.
Endure the sorrow others have,
believe and you will too.
These words may sound so hollow friend,
amidst the plight you’re in.
But joy comes in the morning’s light,
so let the night begin.
Please face your fears with courage and,
have hope beyond your sight.
When clouds move on, a new day’s dawn,
you’ll see that all is right.
And when your storm is done and gone,
you’ll look out from the shore.
Someone may need encouragement,
to help them to endure.
You’ll know exactly what to say,
a phrase that you might use.
“I know what you are going through,
I’ve been there, in your shoes.”
