Have you seen a dullness

That replaced a sparkle

  1. Yes, I can hear you.
    I can feel your pain;
    I can see the glow is gone;
    But I also see beyond
    Your low moment;
    I can see your courage;
    I can see the lioness in you;
    I can see your bounce back spring;
    Yes, I can see it too.;
    I can see you bouncing back;

    On you.
    Yes, he will protect you;
    Don’t lose hope;
    Many have gone deeper
    Than you,
    But bounced back
    And soared to the heights.
    I see it coming;
    Yes, I see it coming.
    Courage!
    Be strong, as always!
