And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.
– ‘After the Storm’ by Mumford and Sons
I’m stuck on this song, this chorus. Seriously. Since Friday night, I’ve been putting the song on repeat. I’ve tried to stop and listen to another song, but there’s no use. I’ve got to see this through, play this song and let it embed me. The lyrics are so powerful. They strike my heart each time I read them. Smacking me across the face and gently stroking my hair. I want to sit and sing and play and get lost in the words. Stay within the bounds of repetition. I mean, what do I even address first? I can’t seem to separate one line from another. I want to comment, but I don’t know how to begin. Other than say, imagine when love finally embodies us. When we become as the Bible has said. How perfect love casts out fear. I see love as so powerful, so strong, we struggle to let go, but imagine a love which doesn’t break. Rather it overcomes. The fears are put aside and forgotten. Lost because love has won. And so, I get over the hill – my barriers. I find something new as I overcome. I find grace in my heart and flowers in my hair. I find life full of courage. Ugh. This song is so beautiful.
