I look into my angel’s hazel eyes
So painfully they are streaming
I never thought I’d cause her cries
And never thought I could endure her screaming
Our love was so divinely flawless
Truly, by God’s wish it was inspired
How could I have been so blatantly thoughtless?
But I cannot change my past nor how it transpired
I changed forever who she would have been
When all my love I did impart;
I weep for the moment that she let me in
And when I drove the blade straight through her heart
I am ashamed by who and what I am’and…
I cannot live this way anymore
For what I have done I am surely damned
For she is fairer far than the lost Lenore!
Now I awake with a start!
Wondering why this dream was seen
Never such pain will I ever impart
Just this vision has made me teem!
So, for fear that all this will come to pass
I must now change my terrible ways
I will repent for my wretched past
And look no more to those wretched days
Oh, Lord bless this my tortured life
That thy will might always be shown
Let not me be a man who holds a knife
And slay the love that we have known
I will try with all that I am to be worthy
I will try to live to always be true
In my every word, thought and deed you will see
I am trying to live worthy of you!
