whose tears are an indication of the ache they know
in an empty place of their coronary heart of hearts…

– of us who want relaxation from working too exhausting:

to chill out, to relaxation and recoup…

   grant them good relaxation and candy goals…

And if indirectly I would assist, Lord,

to achieve out and do what I can…

And if somebody presents to assist me, Lord,
to present me the break that I would like,
let me not be too proud to welcome the love
reaching out to present me a hand…

In so some ways, Lord, all of us want a break:
