When Sweet Is Bitter (repost)

Is this the moment I feel most alive?
Breathing in the memory of you
I’ve got you on my mind again
But the thoughts won’t hold me like you do

Left with a crave that I can’t fulfill
And just when I thought that I could deal
Another day I wake up in a nightmare unreal
Heartache underlying is all that I can feel

Serenades of tragedy
Relating on the terms of grief
Seeking for this never-ending closure
My prayers reach across the void to seek relief

Sometimes pain, it seems, is the only connection left
When bitter is the sweet of all that I want
Every moment given, taken, death is a temporal theft
But it doesn’t change the fact, right now you’re gone

Every whisper to God contains a tear
As faith facilitates my hope to make it through
Singing songs of heaven
Unto the day that I am reconciled with you

Strange it seems that all know loss
But like the stars, none are the same
Heavy the burden of this life’s cross
Yet brighter the hope of love’s eternal flame….
