Songs of Delight and Pain

    Mirrors show 
the pain 
      and anguish on your face
   The years have shaped your visage 
  You'll not catch those early days again
Now - if you want to delight in something 
  Then taste the wind 
It will certainly redden
the face 
   and the wind offers 
its own special 
    reality 
  Of which you can partake 
And if you are open to them 
  Songs of delight and pain 
will teach you 
      and make you cry with joy
