Perspective … (Reciprocity of Love) ...For Alicia Keys

Reflecting on a time long gone

when all felt wrong

Direction was lost

thoughts were withdrawn

My friend, I called on you

You had the voice of reason

that saw me through when NOTHING made sense

Now here we are again

yet, on opposite sides of the fence

bearing the weight of 

making it through another day with a smile

or tracking a path that was never paved

and weathering a storm that had never been faced

But you CAN make it

So no matter how strong the conflict is

just remember to keep your pace

and you WILL win

in this race 

against time
