(In Rememberance/Shirley Pe’lenike/1975-1994) “Pain Is Love” It hurts to love someone,so much so long,like forever-So many years,day and night,but forever turns out to be never/ To lose someone in death,the hurt and sadness is hard to explain-When all life’s hurts are nothing to compare to the pain/ Pain is love,it hurts your heart to care-To open yourself,to want to share/ Pain is love,when someone sometime will die-The raw pain when you have to say goodbye/ Tormented by memories of how it could have been,in a life forever-The pain,the hurt,the sadness,to see them again never.
