’and when the night is cloudy
there is still a light that shines on me
shine until tomorrow, let it be…’
This will most likely not be the first time that the words of Paul McCartney and John Lennon will show up on this blog. That being said, I didn’t think I would use a verse from my FAVORITE song so quickly, but then a good friend of mine found comfort in the words the same way that I do, and today felt like the perfect day.
If you know me, you know I have trouble letting things go, letting them be, and you also know how important this song is to me. I think it may actually be written on my soul because I’m pretty sure the notes run through my blood. This verse in particular is my favorite. There will be dark nights, and some pain will seem so inescapable that you aren’t sure how to catch your breath, but there is always a light. Whether it be a friend, a song, a poem, a memory, maybe even a stranger, something will get you through, hold you up in a way that doesn’t make sense and remind you that if you ‘let it be’ all will work itself out in the end. There are some things, especially loss, that are simply out of our control.
