Love Like Never Before


I've seen the good and the bad,
things that made me laugh and things that made me sad.

I've been hurt by those I loved and loved by those I've hurt,
Of all the thing that I've seen and done this was the worst.

She grew within me fluttering with life,
and as I felt her move I laughed and cried.

I knew I could'nt keep her right from the start,
so I prepared myself for the day we would soon part.

I bore her into this world shaking with pain,
because when I first held her I fell in love again.

I had nothing to give her though I wished to so much,
I had nothing to show her except for my love.

So I gave her to those could give her what I could not,
and I kissed her goodbye the tears on my face burning hot.

I did'nt look back as I walked out the door,
then I stumbled with pain as deep in my chest my heart tore.

I don't regret that day and I rejoyce to my core,
the day I gave her away was the day I sowed her a love I never
showed anyone before.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
