the beautiful pain of longing



man is nothing without love

but love hurts, love is pain

rainbows only follow the rain

dawn’s ephemeral early light

only follows the dark of night

wanting, needing, bringing

the beautiful pain of longing

let her go, release the dove

  2. let her fly away..spread her wings and flee
    watch her reach heights
    rays of light..lit her feather for me to see
    I can not smile
    I frown a while
    then neck pains
    I look down
    she is gone..oh me oh me

  3. Sometimes pain with sorrow. Which makes it worse with the grief of love one.
