All Will Be Well

All Will Be Well

The new day dawns
And I am practicing my purpose once again
It is fresh and it is fruitful if I win
But if I lose
Ooh, I don't know.
I'll be tired but I will turn and I will go
Only guessing till I get there then I'll know
Oh, I will know

All the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that's shining in my window as I write this song to you
And all the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel the love that radiates, illuminating what I know is true

All will be well
Even after all the promises you've broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell

The winter's cold
But the snow still lightly settles on the trees
And a mess is still a moment I can seize until I know
That all will be well
Even though sometimes this is hard to tell
And the fight is just as frustrating as hell
All will be well

All the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that's shining in my window as I write this song to you
And all the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel the love that radiates, illuminating what I know is true

All will be well
Even after all the promises you've broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell

Keep it up and don't give up and chase your dreams
And you will find
All in time

All the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that's shining in my window as I write this song to you
And all the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel the love that radiates, illuminating what I know is true

All will be well
Even after all the promises you've broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell
All will be well
Even after all the promises you've broken to yourself
All will be well

You can ask me how but only time will tell.
You can ask me how but only time will tell.

FYI - my 14 year old student has not come back.
Her "placement" has been terminated with our agency.
Her sister graduated the program and moved on yesterday.
Before she left she told us that her little sister had planned to runaway.
She made her living selling herself on the streets when she was 12.
She has gone back to that life.
She gave up on herself.

I have to believe that she will make it some day.
I have to believe that all will be well - somehow.

  • Michelle this is so awful. I wish you strength and courage to move on from this situation. You are still and always have been to me a great person.

  • Dear, sweet Michelle... you know that you did everything you could for your young charge. As her sister said - she made her own decision, and must live with it, for good or ill: all you can do is your very best for the fortunate kids with whom you come into contact. And you do.

    You're outstanding and I admire who you are and what you do very much. Hang in there for yourself, and the ones who are still there or are yet to come...
