My heart is aching today
I feel so lost going this way
a journey, a path, a country road
I only know this burden is a heavy load
One I don’t know, can I  sanely carry
Why Lord must in this life, I  in sadness tarry
through so much suffering and pain?
my cheeks continually covered in tears like rain
of  memories, grief and hopeless despair
I only want to forget, I want back my joy
Why Lord must emotions play like a toy?
Grief, Lord grief…that is in my heart and soul
I want to love, laugh and play not toil
Lord, let me have the rest of my days
Walking along gentle pathways.
