I’ve tried so hard for many years
To bolster courage, stem the tears
Reminding me day after day
That memories don’t fade away.
There’s no way left to heal the burn
When love’s been lost or not returned
Love lingers long and leaves a scar
That shadows one both near and far.
I thank You Lord, and understand
The beauty that is still at hand
It’s free to all that have no fear
And keeps Your Presence ever near !
