Lyrics

by Jean Mishler




Digging, digging through the past in her mind
Grief abated, depths thoroughly minded
Releasing the sadness itself a bitter bind
For loss implies a former joy with pain is intertwined

To forge the sweetness from the pain
when memory's at risk
To wash away the wrenching loss
and save the sweetest kiss.
To forgive capricious destiny
with gratitude for the bliss
with gratitude, with gratitude for the bliss

Longing, longing for him so profound
Her feet no longer knowing the feel of the ground
Her youth no friend here, a very poor guide
How could she have know that he had so much to hide?

To forge the sweetness from the pain
when memory's at risk
To wash away the wrenching loss
and save the sweetest kiss.
To forgive capricious destiny
with gratitude for the bliss
with gratitude, with gratitude for the bliss

Seeming, seeming not so long ago, memories fresh
Yellow roses whispers in her ears, her trembling flesh
His burden, now know, was to easily dismissed
Ignoring children and a ring for the power of his kiss

To forge the sweetness from the pain
when memory's at risk
To wash away the wrenching loss
and save the sweetest kiss.
To forgive capricious destiny
with gratitude for the bliss
with gratitude, with gratitude for the bliss

Memory, memory in time is much more kind
He was really right to have left her behind.
