My heart is light

The weight of loss that crushed me has been raised
My heart is light ; my eyes glow like blue pearls
By  my dear human friends, I feel  embraced

By my caring friends, I have been praised
My heart is lifted ; I feel love  return
The weight of loss that crushed me has been raised

Now I have refound my own true face
And by  the angels, I’m no longer spurned
By dear human friends, I feel  embraced

The past three years have maimed me in their way
The knife cut out,, the flesh beneath was  burned
The weight of loss that crushed me has been raised

I foresaw, but lived through dangerous days
I paid my debts and bore the burial urn
By dear human friends, I was  embraced

 

And yet I weep for him who has been torn
I feel the wound, the ache, which must be borne
The weight of loss that crushed me has been raised
By beloved human friends, I feel  embraced
