It's A Sweet Surrender

Dedicated to M.L.K.

Love hurts

but it's a sweet surrender

that will hold you down

while you're trying to remember

when it's gone

what it was

and from now until forever

that love will keep you

warm.

Love will keep you warm.


Time flies

seems like only yesterday

I could walk to you

and I'd see your smiling face

and our words exchanged

made me feel like this time

would never go away.

But now it's gone.


Time heals

I think what you would want

for me and that seems

to bring a measure

of peace for me

instead of holding on

it's what sets me free.

And all of us should be free.


Now so much has changed...

So much has changed.

Thanks to M.L.K.


Love hurts

but it's a sweet surrender

that will hold you down

while you're trying to remember

what it was

when it was

and even if from now to never

better to have lost a love

than to have never loved

at all.
