No Matter The Pain In Your Heart… Everything’s Going To Be Alright


No Matter The Pain In Your Heart… Everything’s Going To Be Alright By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Tears unshed… pain unseen
A smile covers it all
Covers it all… like sunshine glowing

Look into her eyes, she won’t let you see
What’s really in her heart
She knows how to hide it all

Many years have taught her how
To say all the right things
Not show her pain, weakness

No one wants to know… anyway
They carry pain, heartache of their own
We each live in a different world… side by side

Only inches from each other… our worlds aren’t the same
Her world is hell… his world is heaven
No one knows what the other goes through

Unless… someone tells; we don’t because no one wants to know
Who wants to hear someone complain, cry
The ones who are quiet are the ones who are noticed

When things are real… people are quiet
People who protest too much… are the loudest
Usually… aren’t the ones who really suffer

The quiet ones don’t have to say anything
They know it doesn’t change a thing
What made them sad… has to be accepted

You know the old sayings about if you can’t change something
Learn acceptance… go forward, while letting go
You just as well laugh… as to cry

Smile the brightest… show no pain
Let the world see your sunshine smile
Let them see… somehow… everything really can be alright

Be a beacon,  a lighthouse… near the ocean
Guiding ships to safety from the rocky shore
Comforting… everything’s going to be alright

Sail your ship forward into the setting sun
With a smile on your face
No matter the pain in your heart… everything’s going to be alright
