This is a song by Michael McLean Like a gentle wind can blow The clouds from the sky, Like a gentle touch can ease The pain of good-bye, Like a gentle smile embraces Empty souls in lonely places, We should be more gentle with ourselves. Like the friend who gently Builds us up when we're down. Like a gentle kiss can turn Our world around. We've been hurt by others often, We've forgiven and forgotten. We should be as gentle with ourselves, If we will see... Like the Shepherd leads his flock With gentle commands, With his gentle voice that Only hearts understand, One thing we can know for certain, He has borne the awful burden So we can be gentle with ourselves. One thing that I know for certain: He will bear my every burden, So I can be gentle with myself.
