'tis a fearful thing

'tis a fearful thing
to love what death can touch

a fearful thing
to love, to hope, to dream, to be-

to be,
and oh, to lose

a thing for fools, this,

and a holy thing,

a holy thing
to love.

for your life has lived in me,
your laugh once lifted me,
your word was gift to me.

to remember this brings painful joy.

'tis a human thing, love.
a holy thing, to love
what death has touched.
