Things are growing everywhere
Things turn green, and are reborn
But I, I endure an eternal death
A death worse than any other
As I watch everything else
Thriving

The spring sun shines
Giving warmth and life
To everything else
But I, I am under a shadow
So I get no warmth, no love
As I watch everything else
Thriving

I have hardly begun to live!
I am the flower
That has barely begun to bloom
But how can a flower bloom
Under such a dark shadow?
Perhaps someday, the sun will take a new angle
And shine upon me
I have this faint hope
As I watch everything else
Thriving

How sad this is~
I believe everything happens for a reason~
The trick is figuring out what God is trying to show us~
I hope the sun shines on you soon~
Until then, take care~
(Pray)

May all your shadows dissipate and the sun shine forth

Just hold in there, with time the sun will move to include you too, then you shall thrive.
