Those heartfelt melodies played soft and slow
Causing my life to flash before my face
Ne'er expecting my spirit to be set aglow
Engulfed; memories sweet my heart embraced.
Oh, sweet memories to be found in tears
These tears that fall from eyes in great excess
A poet's heart forever shall be clear
To patiently wait for love's sweet caress.
A tower of pain, no longer to find
For this lesson I've lived and loved for naught
But I shall take the pain and make it blind
Love found, love lost, forever to be taught.
Oh fertile bed, to love again with eagerness
For love will die if not cleansed of bitterness.
