about their reason for tearing her heart from me
but the clouds, they closed their doors
and even the sun looked away—
that was my saddest day.
I pleaded with devils and godsto obtain some solace in their reason
but they spoke thunder through storms
and left me drenched in rain—
that was my darkest day.
So I traveled across land and timeto find a wise man who knew the nature of love
but the sands of earth became giant pits
and I could not reach him—
that was my most frustrating day.
Then, I decided to look within myselfso that maybe there I'd find a better man
but I had grown so tired that it no longer mattered
and the idea drifted off on a forgotten dream—
that was my clearest day.
