Loving The Little Things

Fan The Flame

On days I feel broken

and my mind is a mess

Kind words left unspoken

holding a box of darkness

When the size of my stature

determines my fate

When my feelings don't matter

and I'm surrounded by hate

May the joy in my soul

be the ample amount

To give me control

to help myself out

May a soft bed await me

as I lay down my head

May I feel complete

as I crawl into my bed

May I count every blessing

holding the gloom off at bay

May I see I'm possessing

all I need for the day

Help me to remember

that no matter what size

Every life's like an ember

a little love brings to life
