Metta Music-By Way of Sorrow-a song for Thanksgiving

I offer this song to all those alone this Thanksgiving, without family and friends—or maybe even without hope.  Don’t give up!  There is a way home.  There is a way to love’s table. The first step may be hope and trust  in our own innate capacity to change, to grow, to evolve, to heal, to create a happy life from our heart’s deepest yearnings for home.  Steve Goodheart

By Way of Sorrow

From “Cry, Cry, Cry”
(Richard Shindell, Lucy Kaplansky, and Dar Williams)

You’ve been taken by the wind.
You have known the kiss of sorrow
Doors that would not take you in
Outcast and a stranger

You have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you’ll reach your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years

You have drunk a bitter wine
With none to be your comfort
You who once were left behind
Will be welcome at love’s table

You have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you’ll reach your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years

All the nights that joy has slept
Will awake to days of laughter
Gone the tears that you have wept
You’ll dance in freedom ever after

You have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you’ll reach your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years

You have come by way of sorrow
You have come by way of tears
But you’ll reach your destiny
Meant to find you all these years
Meant to find you all these years

The music and singing are as beautiful as the words.  Have a listen:
