PAUSE

sunset pause

Are you feeling sad inside

Like nothing’s going right?

And ‘though you’ve tried so many things

You cannot see the light?

Just stop.

And breathe.

And smile.

 

Sometimes you feel so out of reach,

Like a needle in a stack,

One grain of sand upon the beach,

A pebble in a crack.

Just stop.

And breathe.

And smile.

 

Open up your tired eyes,

You’ll see your star’s still shining,

And maybe then you’ll realise

You have your silver lining.

Just stop.

And breathe.

And smile.

 

Serendipity will pick you up,

Like a penny off the ground.

While now it’s feeling all fucked-up,

Your luck will turn around.

Just stop.

And breathe.

And smile.

 

You’ll find the wave that rocks your boat,

The wind that blows your tree,

The salty brine that makes you float,

The love that sets you free.

Just stop.

And breathe.

And smile.

 

Nobody can steal your heart

If it’s safely locked away,

You’ll only tear yourself apart

If you tell the pain to stay.

Just stop.

And breathe.

And smile.

 

New gifts wash in with every tide

To fill that aching hole

Live the journey, enjoy the ride

And open up your soul.

Just stop.

And breathe.

And smile.

 

Let your beating heart be stilled,

You mustn’t go too fast,

Precious things take long to build

If they’re going to last . . . . .

So, stop and breathe and smile

And make it all worthwhile.
