The Pain of Losing Love is Greater than the Joy of Gaining Love
You never love more than the moment they take their love away.
You never regret more than the day it's too late to turn the clock back.
When they are here, you love with all your heart.
But when they go, you miss them with your heart, body and soul.
When they are here, all of your heart is full and warm.
But when they go, the whole wide world becomes empty and cold.
And you cry for all the promise of the future they take away.
And you cry for all the memories they leave behind.
