Sorrow's Song

I'll explain later -
Basically this is a compilation of various song lyrics that just...

I was naive, and I thought that I was strong.

...but now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I miss you.
I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone.
Life's like an hourglass glued to the table.
No one can find the rewind button,

I miss you.

Can you tell me, is there something more to believe in?
Or is this all there is?
I'd want to know, I'd want to know, my God, 
All I know - time is a valuable thing, 
watch it fly by as the pendulum swings,
watch it count down to the end of the day.

The clock ticks life away - It's so unreal!

It's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word -
We are screaming inside, but we can't be heard.
But I will remember you....

Your presence still lingers here... 
These wounds won't seem to heal this pain is just too real.

But long before, having hurt, I'd send the pain below.
Much like suffocating.

This is me pretending this is all I need and I just wish
that I didn't feel like there was something I missed

And all the colors mix together - to grey.
And it breaks her heart.

I'm bound by the life you left behind,
your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams.

You won't get to see the tears I cry.
God thy will is hard, but You hold every card.

Don’t you cry, wipe away the teardrop from your eye.

It's easier to believe in this sweet madness, oh,

this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees:
Blessed be Your name on the road marked with suffering, 
though there's pain in the offering, blessed be Your name.
It won't rain all the time. The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long, your tears won't fall,

That was really awesome Lisa :). I often do something like that in my head, where I start singing a song, but then the lyrics from a different song come into my head.

This was true poetry. 5 stars!
