Father please forgive me
For I strayed beyond your path
Absolve me from this final act of love
How did a life of jubilance and union sublime
Begin with bells but terminate in blood?

You found your life back right where it started
You put your dreams back in the bag
You saw a young man smile at a newborn child
And put your head in your mother’s lap
You didn’t know then how life would hurt you
You couldn’t see what lay ahead
You hadn’t met me. I hadn’t met you
We should have kissed goodbye instead

In my hour of happiness
Doubt began to rise
Aching thoughts my mind could not allay
For how can such perfection be maintained in its true form?
Before it all begins to slip away

I saw the briefest wandering
Of her eye the other day
The slightest hint of musing undisclosed
Oh Lord I cannot share her with another on this earth
So take from me this bounty you bestowed
