Sorrow sits beside me, and she laces her hand with mine
I know you, I say to sorrow; I wish you would let me be
I’ve had enough of your company

Companions we are, sorrow reveals, entwined eternally
Leaning close she whispers tenderly
I exist between the beats of your heart

I shall not abide, I say to sorrow, to suffer anymore
Never shall we part, sorrow says to me
For your memories call me to you

Devotion draws me here sweet child, sorrow says to me
I am the remnants of laughter and joy
A life well-lived, one sustained by love and light
Is what draws me to you

Love, sorrow says to me, transforms the world
When love is severed, it calls to me; and
I am reborn
