Time Will Ease the Hurt

 

The sadness of the present days

Is locked and set in time,

And moving to the future

Is a slow and painful climb.

But all the feelings that are now

So vivid and so real

Canít hold their fresh intensity

As time begins to heal.

No wound so deep will ever go

Entirely away;

Yet every hurt becomes

A little less from day to day.

Nothing else can erase the painful

Imprints on your mind;

But there are softer memories

That time will let you find.

Though your heart wonít let the sadness

Simply slide away,

The echoes will diminish

Even though the memories stay.
