Love Lost and Pain

Standard

It’s the innocent ones and the fools God loves

He wraps them in kindness, gives ‘em love from above

Washing them clean of all sin unmeant

Leaving their souls free of lament

Happy is a man

Who has no regard

For love lost and pain

Or life that’s hard

Listen you wise

And heed every word

A gentleman cries

For all things absurd

 

Hungry babies cry to suckle the breast

Old men die slow, then laid to sweet rest

This world is turning like a clock with no hands

But no innocent mind understands

Oh happy is he

That has no regard            

For love lost and pain

Or life that is hard

Oh listen you wise

And heed every word

A gentleman cries

For all things absurd

But the fools and the innocent reign

As they live without love lost or pain

Yes the fools and the innocent reign

As they live without love lost or pain


Sheila Pierson, 2011
