This song is so wonderful and so powerful that I saved it for a special occasion were the immense burst of emotions it portraits could be fairly described by my words.
This song joined me in one of my most desperate times during my father's disease, one of those moments when I secluded myself in the safety of closed doors and headphones to allow my soul to burst into tears, a painful release of the pain of seeing someone so dear, so special, so loved, dry up and shatter slowly in front of your tired eyes.
Pain is an incredible feel, terrifying. It still feels incredible to reminisce about such an intense feeling, such a level of despair, it feels... Unbelievable.
But with the help of the inner silence the chest has slowly left the pain go, a little. Acceptance is painful too but a lot less than that sense of despair.
And life goes own with those scars marking your past and future self forever, yet, in the silent and meaningful background of reality that pain became another part of your inner light, now even stronger to find itself a bit less fragmented.
Forgiveness, love, acceptance. Three pillars to survive the difficult, painful, tortuous existence in this world. I ask for forgiveness every day, for all the pain I've suffered in my life, for all the pain every human being is suffering right now, has suffered of will suffer. Because we're all connected and a part of each other's fate, we, as humans are unified, bound to each other and bound to succeed or fail as a species.
I can't believe people suffer what I suffered and worse pain, so for that I apologize, love, and accept, send my best to each soul in pain, send them my biggest sympathy and compassion, hope they understand that we're all in this together, and we'll get through it, with patience and love.
