Always

June 6, 2012
There's not always a person
Where you would like for one to be
There's not always a reason
That can be clearly seen

There's not always a feeling
Behind each spoken word
There's not always an impact
In truth that can be heard

There's not always a goodbye
When things come to an end
There's not always a moment
Where it's fine to just pretend

There's not always an answer
To questions raging wild
There's not always a soft side
To those who appear mild

But there is always a heartbeat
Behind each step you take
And there is always a hope left
Even when things break
