Loss: I Know I Can Go On

Though days be dark with stormsstorm

And burdens weigh my heart

Though troubles wait at every turn,

I know I can go on.

When sorrow heals my soul

and burdens make me strong, 

Though troubles wait at every turn,

I know I can go on.

My sister in my heart,hands-600497_640

My brother in my song,

Though troubles wait at every turn,

I know I an go on.

The destination is near,

Though troubles wait at every turn,

I know I can go on.

So brothers take my handholding hands

And sisters sing my song,

When hope awaits at every turn,

I know we will go on.*
