Hansel and ...

Dark clouds in the morning don’t always mean rain

It may mean the sun just wasn’t up early today

Because it’s hard to keep shinning when people complain

When people refuse to see all you illuminate

You bring warmth; all they feel is heat

You bring honesty; they say you should be more discreet

It’s really lonely being you sometimes

They can’t see how much of an effort it takes to smile

Don’t worry; forget the cliche, it’ll all be fine

Through the good and bad; keep your hand in mine

Maybe this ‘evil stepmother’ of a life let you out

But be sure I’m here holding your hand; no doubt

Sometimes there may be no breadcrumbs in sight

And the little left all swallowed up by night

But be sure; I’m here holding on to what you have

You can smile; we’ll get home no matter where we are

Have your back…always.
