alas the days of a saddened heart
carrying remnants from times apart.
can you see the contented way
with love to fulfill, fears to allay?
your strings need mending, O saddened heart
the fruits of your spirit striving less tart.
optimistic melody should make you smile
and i shall follow your dreams for awhile
dry your tears my dearest core
there is love to bind us always and more
and should you doubt this path from sorrow
a chance anew shall arise tomorrow.
