My Eternal Grief

In a life that's not fair 
When love bids adieu 
Right when you care 
Grief leaves you undone

When your love is true 
And you're fully aware 
Of what love can do 

There's no time to prepare 
No time to think through 
In a time of deep despair 
Grief leaves you undone 

Your love is not chief 
You're left to moan
Against all belief
Grief leaves you undone 

You can sit and groan
And find no relief 
In the light that's not shone 

When faced with grief 
You feel so alone 
Love is like a thief 
Grief leaves you undone
