Jabez

my child, my child
my beautiful Jabez
years have torn you apart from the rest
I’ve seen you come
I saw you leave
you took a stand
and live not in defeat

yet why those tears?
why do you fear?
you have conquered the world
and have made it clear
that you live to love
and take away  fears.

they tore your heart
they ripped you clean
but you stand in darkness
and stitched those broken wings
came out of the open
and shone your light again

my child, my child
my beautiful Jabez
take comfort from your family and friends
they give you love
they give you peace
they share your sympathies
and all that you need.

fear not my child
and dry those tears
close those tired eyes
and dream again
let your sunshine
flow from within.

my child, my child
my beautiful Jabez
you are beautiful and apart from the rest.
