Sorrow's Song

For love lost and shattered hope, First a broken heart, now a length of rope. How much pain can one heart take When day after day it continues to break. Happiness evades me, peace cannot be found, Sometimes in my sorrow I feel I will drown. If only I could turn back time I would find a way to keep love mine. That this would happen I could not see Sometimes love stays, sometimes it flies free. Tears fell for a while but now they run dry, No matter how sad I cannot cry. So long have I kelp my emotions tied That now a part of my soul has died. From songs of despair to songs of love From sorrow below to hope above, I fear that happiness I'll not find again Before I meet my final end. Thou I hate this pain that ebbs with each breath Which do I fear most, is it life, is it death. My dreams may remind me of happier times But then I awake and always find - My sorrow.
