Can a song heal the pain, a poem for @MandyRowden by Tracy Diane Miller

Every day in my sorrow
A shadow follows me
A witness to my torment
How I wish that I could break free

This shadow knows my secret
Has been privy to my pain
The amount of tears that I have cried
Could easily challenge the rain

I am hurt
Heartache is my lot
To constantly live with pain
Means joy I have forgot

Then I found the music
So comforting in its reveal
Do these lyrics also know my pain
For a song can help me heal

I am grateful for the songwriter
A tapestry of emotions skillfully thread
For it seems a song has healed my pain
And tomorrow I can look ahead
