“Turns of Life” by Richard Durschlag


Someone was trying to tell me
It's not easy to see or hear
We think we have to be strong
To take everything on alone

Or we worry what people will think
Even those we should know
Will be there no matter what
Who really matter

Life takes us to strange places
Not where we expect
Easy to wonder how
Things end up as they do

Did we somehow go wrong
Even for all the right reasons
Or is it moving to the right place
Without our understanding

Easy to forget
That we have hope
That we can have faith
That we have friends

That we are not alone
And were never meant to be
And that is the strength
We only have to let ourselves see
