In Moments of Pain

By Tabasom Eblaghie

When the days seem bleak and dark,
The minutes ticking ever so slowly,
Remind yourself again and again,
It’s just for now. It’s not forever.

When the nights are filled with loneliness,
And the silence of solitude fills your heart and soul,
Just bring to mind that things always change,
It’s just for now. It’s not forever.

When your soul aches with pain,
From separation, hurt and betrayal,
Hold your precious heart in hand and say,
It’s just for now. It’s not forever.

Pain will come but pain does leave,
Nothing is permanent,
Nothing is ever-lasting,
It’s just for now. It’s not forever.

This too shall pass,
Minute by minute, day by day,
Contentment will come and your wounds will heal,
It’s just for now. It’s not forever.

Have hope, for you are not alone.
You are loved, protected and guided,
Suffering turns into stories of growth and strength,
It’s just for now. It’s not forever.
