Healer's Lament

Hear, dear heart
And try to understand
My heart—
That part of me, the start of—
Start of the unabated flow
Of love I live to show

H is for the Hard Times—oh, I'll be there
E is for Eternally—how long I'll care, for
A, it's All I have and all I'll be—!
R, I'm Reaching, ah, reaching blindly and
T, Trying, trying not to fall for you

And that's my heart
The cup that runneth o'er
Spilling—
It's killing me, but filling—
Filling me, it doesn't take much
Your smile, a nod, a touch

My dear heart
How can you understand
My heart—
It's singing you and ringing—
Ringing true, sounding my love song
But I can't sing along

With my heart
Ever changing its tune
Turning—
It's yearning now, and burning—
Burning now, bleeding all anew
So what am I to do?

H is for the Hard Times—oh, I'll be there
E is for Eternally—how long I'll care, for
A, it's All I have and all I'll be—!
R, I'm Reaching, ah, reaching blindly and
T, Trying, trying not to fall for you

Yes, that's my heart
Just like the nightingale
Winging—
I'm singing now, but clinging—
Clinging how desp'rately to day
Like love that cannot stay

Ah, my heart.
