To what degree does love survive No matter what it cost, Can man escape lost love alive Once it is truly lost? When let into a tender heart Love pierces man’s defence, And leaves the heart with battle scars Without much recompense.
The early Spring of love will bring A new and urgent beat, As love will raise his footsteps up A foot above the street. And nature seems to smile on him From blue, unclouded skies, The Summer of his love will beam From her adoring eyes.
But Autumn brings the falling leaves All dry and burned up, sere, Once she begins to turn her back At this time of the year. Then love will show its darker side Will threaten to depart, As he despairs at her grim cares That tear and shred his heart.
Foul winter is the final stage When he awakes one day, To echoes of her footsteps as He finds she's gone away. Then life will stretch before him like A grim, unending storm, As love will turn its back on him, He’ll wish he’d not been born.
