In silence may pain dissipate

Allow grief to invoke its plan

Life is not ours to understand

I’ll meet you, then, beside the gate

.

Time is too cruel to ever wait

He plays his part, imperfect hand

In silence may pain dissipate

Allow grief to invoke its plan

.

A million times I’ll find a way

Bereft, I’ll still do all I can

What tests there are, I will withstand

I’ll keep you close, my dearest mate

In silence may pain dissipate
