    This is a lyrical rewrite, written in my own words to the tune of the Adele song, "Someone Like You." ��

    Oh child, well it's been a while
    Since you dropped that frown and you wore a smile
    I guess life's been tough on you
    But child, you're so much tougher, and you know it's true
    Dear child, won't you please just try
    I'm waiting here for you, right here in the light

    And I won't tell you what to do or to hide it
    But when a chance comes your way, sometimes you gotta ride it
    Please just try to hear my voice
    And everything inside it, 'cause you see, it's never over...

    Precious child, I'll find my way to you
    All the world's available for you too
    Don't give up please, I said
    But I'm not gonna beg
    Sometimes the wound's too deep to get free of your head
    Yeah, sometimes the wound's too deep and you get lost in your head...

    I know how you've capsized
    And that all these days have made you realize
    You were born so brave, never misbehaved
    But only by your own hand could you be saved

    I wait for you to rise up, to try and fight it
    To fully realize your strength, to not deny it
    I wish you'd hear my words
    And that soon you'd finally find that for you, it's still not over...

    Precious child, I'll find my way to you
    All the world's available for you too
    Don't give up please, I said
    But I'm not gonna beg
    Sometimes the wound's too deep to get free of your head
    Yeah, sometimes the wound's too deep and you get lost in your head...

    Release all your fears, your sorrows, and tears
    All past mistakes were valiantly made
    You couldn't have known all the challenges you'd soon face...

    Precious child, I'll find my way to you
    All the world's available for you too
    Don't give up please, I said
    But I'm not gonna beg
    Sometimes the wound's too deep to get free of your head
    Yeah, sometimes the wound's too deep and you get lost in your head.

    *As a reminder, I'm remaining on hiatus from reading and reposting until my son is healthy and home, and after we've moved and gotten settled in our new state. Thank you all very much for your ongoing prayers, good wishes, support, kindness, patience, and understanding. I have been tremendously blessed by this beautiful extended family of writers and I remain forever grateful. ♥️
