A poem I can dance thru life on

I don't lnow who wrote this but it often speaks to me: "This too shall pass away" If I can endure for this minute Whatever is happening to me, No matter how heavy my heart is Or how "dark the moment may be -- If I can remain calm and quiet With all my world crashing about me, Secure in the knowledge God loves me When everyone else seems to doubt me -- If I can but keep on believing What I know in my heart is true, That "darkness" will fade with the "morning" And that this will pass away, too -- Then nothing in life can defeat me For as long as this knowledge remains I can suffer whatever is happening For I know God will break "all the chains" that are binding me tight in "the darkness" And trying to fill me with fear -- For there is no night without dawning
