One Gift

I laugh and laughed and wept and wept 
not knowing whom I lost, so kind so sweet He 
touch my heart and heard my weeping 
so empty, so cold, so bitter, as many winters like a 
frozen stream not arriving at the shore 
He came and came as fast as lightning 
He melted the frozen stream and upon, oh spring was coming 
melting into His words, and flowers were blooming 
and waters rushed onto the shore 
like water in a pot of flowers 
everything grew as bright as the sun fuel the heart 
into happiness into love 
as much as a man could be happier with
