I stand still…
     deep breaths,
     small steps,
     moment by moment,
     they say.
I stand still…
     a new life ends,
     a new normal begins,
     a new life within.
I stand still…
     Will tomorrow come,
     and ease my sorrow?
     Yesterday was gone too fast.
     While today seems to forever last.
     Tomorrow is well beyond my reach.
I stand still as…
     moments become days.
     Yesterday is long gone
     but today becomes tomorrow.

God is within her, she will not fall; 
God will help her at break of day.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress
Psalm 46:5 and 10-11
