Let It Be

her cramped palms covered her face
concealing fear, confusion and hate
why does this happen to me right now
when has this nightmare become my fate

her thoughts spinning, searching for peace
her fingers digging deep into skin
whatever happened to the blithe days
how can I find peace deep within

please world don't let me stay in this state
please love don't leave me alone in here
please life don't abandon my veins
please God don't walk away from me

and then this voice strong, calm and sound
painted a picture of a new start
it asked to trust though there's no sense
it asked to open the wounded heart

one tear has dropped, crushing in pieces
it's salty crystals rolling around
her forehead softened its wrinkled creases
her screaming mouth didn't make a sound

the world stopped spinning at awe of this sight
the moon stopped pulling tides from the sea
calmness and strength filled up her eyes

her shoulders dropped, her mind went clear
whether she smiled, no one could see
but when she slowly opened her eyes
her purple lips let out this sound
these words of wisdom, the  LET   IT   BE
