A Sad Song

In the wake of the tragic and senseless loss of life yesterday in Uvalde, I have been overwhelmed by various emotions – sorrow and sadness and anger and outrage.  There is so much that needs to be done, so much that needs to change, and so much that needs to be said.  And this morning, I just don’t have the words to express all those emotions.  As I drove to work, I listened to some sad songs, I prayed, and I cried.   I have been trying to capture some of my thoughts and put them in writing, but I am still not there.

A Sad Song

Sometimes I need a sad song,
When things are all bottled up inside,
I can’t begin to express my thoughts
until after I’ve already cried.

Sometimes I need a sad song,
Just to get me through the day
Sometimes I need a sad song
When I don’t know what to say.

So forgive me if I’m not myself,
I may not tell you what’s wrong
Right now I just need a little bit of time,
So I can sing a few more sad songs.

May God bless you and the people you love, and may God comfort and strengthen the people of Uvalde.
