I especially love this portion of the song especially now as I am letting go of some bitterness and seeking to forgive --
This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it and
Let the hatred numb our sorrows
The wise hand opens slowly
To lilies of the valley and tomorrow
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We'd be held....
I'm posting another entry with the video. I hope it touches you like it does me.
