My great friend lives
Thousands of miles away
And we haven't seen her in years
Cheryl's tears fall like rain when she's
caught up in the past....
When she's pulled like a magnet
To memories she'd like to forget

Haunting images of her younger days
That play over and over again
Like an instant replay on tv
Some memories have burned
Themselves in her brain
Like a calf being branded
By a red hot iron

I'd like to hold her close and tell her
That the pain is not what defines her....
Whisper sweetly that the same spirit
That survived it all
Lives ever stronger now than then
The spirit that shines like a lighthouse
And brings hope to the hopeless

I would look her in the eye
And convince her that misfortune
Can be transforming....
That the deep wounds of youth
Can open your heart to feel
The pain of others and that God
Can bring light from darkness
When we draw on the past and refuse
To be ruled by it

Perhaps He and His plan revolve
Around pain
As surely as the cross reveals
The world's greatest contradiction
Brought to life
Passion and pain incomprehensible
So that light would triumph over
Evil, indifference, and hopelessness

Yes, I would whisper sweetly
That all is not lost....
That hardship is the furnace that stokes
The fire to make a difference

He is soooo wise
Knowing that hearts once broken
Are the only ones that can reach out
And bring His love to the world.
