Only Love

There's a storm within your soul.

Like a storm, it takes its toll.

All the times it's left you scarred:

Only love could be this hard.


Count the stars that fill the sky.

None of them can tell you why.

Count the chances that you've missed.

Only love could hurt like this.


You're done, you say, but still you stay

Because you know no other way.


Every night you face alone

Numbs your spirit to the bone.

You long for just a gentle touch.

Only love could hurt this much.


Always you come back again.

Only love will ease this pain.

When the wounds are deep like these,

Only love will give you peace.
