Because

There are times we have to push,
grit our teeth and smile.
Inhale deep, sorrows keep,
go the extra mile.
because……….

There are times we wonder,
‘Why is it all so hard?’.
as an inch becomes a yard,
and weary seems so small a word
to swim and not go under.

I see it in your eyes
as you can see in mine.
The heart that says, ‘I’ve had enough’,
while words say ,’I am fine.’
The longing just to rest awhile,
to linger,
just at peace.
The work week grind, and life unkind,
just longing for release.

So, there are times we have to push,
grit our teeth and smile.
Inhale deep, sorrows keep,
go the extra mile,
because………
