The Cost


Like the earth smiles when it sees the sun

When I first saw you the same warmth did feel

Like the shore smiles when this bank the ocean’s waves run

The affection I felt heart seeing you my heart couldn’t conceal.


Like the air is pleased by the Robin’s song

My spirit was soothed by hearing your voice sing

Like the night is pleased knowing the stars to it belong

So was I smitten knowing your music to my life would bring.


Then I had to leave what would have made me happy behind

And the universe groaned at what so pleased it lost

For it should never be so quickly to lose such love you find

And now I am only left to appreciate the cost.
