When I get weary of the worldWith all is pain and grief
You offer me a glimpse of joy,
A comforting relief.
Tonight it was a swallow’s song.
Each cheery little tweet
Restored the joy that I had lost,
And made my evening sweet.
I know the world is still out there,
Filled with fear and travail,
But in that moment peace and hope
Proved that they would prevail.
Tomorrow I will rise again,
Face life and carry on,
But I will hold that one moment
Until my pain is gone.
