Your Summit

Darling, you may think 
You would have turned back 
If you only knew 
What was coming up ahead.

But hear me, friend,
When I say 
Soon you will never wish 
You stopped this journey.

At this summit's peak,
You will hold
A clearer vision of a wider landscape
From anything you could have seen below.

Dear, these cuts and scrapes,
the deeper gashes,
Will be stitched together in time...
Hewn into a stronger soul.

Love, this pain is a part of the story. 
The hurt lets us feel the pleasure.
Our sorrows help us appreciate the joy.
The exhaustion gives us subsequent rest.

Now, is when you graze the rocks and
Feel pinned under crushing boulders.
But this is now...
And it will not be always.

I don't know when, but soon, 
Is when you see the majesty
Of all those trials now underneath 
Which have helped you know all of earth's beauty.
