This pain I feel within in my soul, Is so relenting, won't let go, Years go by the pain goes on, You feel no more all is gone, Soul felt pain cuts like a knife, Taking joy and causing strife, The years have gone, there's nothing left, The fight been long you gave your best, For in this tortured life you find, The world around you most unkind, Never true love have you known, Years grew colder as you've grown, Now you're older, time has passed, And reflecting you think back, Could there have been another way, For love and joy to come and stay. ©Helen Hummel September 6, 2001 Used With Permission All Rights Reserved By Author Website Mail
