penance of the dying

My heart bleeds under the weight of my penance
And with each tear that I shed,
Ten drops of blood and sweat are freed
And then there’s nothing left

Show me a valley where men forever sing,
And I’ll show you ten where they do nothing but cry;
Tell me of Paradise where men forever live,
And I’ll tell you of Earth, where they, forever die

[Hata Bildir]
