I Hope Tonight Brings You Healing

You’re longing for healing. But I don’t know exactly where you are right now. Maybe in a bedroom, staring at your reflection in a cloudy mirror. Maybe on a bus, watching cars drift past a darkened window. Maybe in the arms of someone who makes you happy.

I don’t know where your body rests, how you’re feeling, or what you need. All I hope is that tonight brings you healing.

I hope the day softens as it comes to a close. I hope the sunset makes you feel calm and warm. I hope that no matter what has hurt you in the last hours, last days, last weeks, you remind yourself to take a deep breath and exhale it out into the night sky.

I hope you let the words that people have said about you roll off your back. I hope you let the worries run like rainwater to the gutter, down the drain, and far away from your mind. And I hope, when you’re tired, you rest your head on the pillow and listen to the promises of the moon giving way to the sun in the sky.

This pain won’t last forever, I promise.
The heaviness in your chest won’t stay.
