I’ve Been to the Edge of Darkness

Sudden Loss: How to Cope When a Friend Dies SuddenlyI’ve been to the edge of darkness
in a world of endless nights.
I’ve seen what tragedy looks like
in the harshest corners of life.
And I’ve come back to tell you
that living is worth the fight.
We were not born to let darkness
overpower our inner light.
We exist to burn like stars
and illuminate the night.
