The Cost of Love


What is loss compared to love?
As bright as day in the darkest night
As fast and gentle as a white dove

The loss of life after she left to the above
Leaving with gentle might
What is loss compared to love?

The downfall of lost love-
The gentle life, dying of fright.
As fast and gentle as a white dove

Fleeing to the top of the loft
White against the sky blue, giving up the fight;
What is loss compared to love?

She left me, to join her fathers above.
Seeing, at the end of the tunnel, a bright light.
As fast and gentle as a white dove.

Left behind, heartbroken with love
The day has turned, back into the bright night.
What is loss compared to love?
As fast and gentle as a white dove.
