Give your pain a bit of gratitude.
Endure it with due deference to its cause.
The healing instruments could not intrude
Without obeying certain natural laws.
Each moment is a step towards getting well,
Light shining past the doorway of your pain.
Let time take you gently through this hell,
Sure that time will heal what wounds remain.
One lives in hope yet suffers in despair,
Often bearing more than one can bear,
Needing time to savor time again.
