“Face Of My Life (for Bertha & Eric)

I don’t know
Who you are
But once
You shielded me
In your troubled heart
But I lost more of me
For a scrap of clarity

And I’ll always know your face
Who you are has erased
I almost died holding to you
Now I breathe my life back in

Thinking of you
It must sink in
You’ll never again be
The face of my life
You once lived with me

So it goes
Don’t believe
Words as they flow
Or that love can live
Unconditionally
Like I could not love you
To never still fail being worth
Defending my truth

I know your face
But you’re erased
I could have died
Holding to you
Now I take life back in

Thinking of you
It will sink in
You’ll never again be
The face of my life
You once lived with me

I would have sold my soul
To stay residing in your heart
The vision of how to be whole
Suddenly means we’re
Worlds apart

But I surrender
To the Lord
I stop crying to whom
Does not care to hear me
As I work to pacify my swords
I tremble as I let you go
When I no longer know
Who I clung to
In such vanity

But I know your face
Though you’re now erased
I almost died for you
My life is mine to take in

Remembering you
It will soon enough sink in
You’ll never again be
The face of my life
You once lived with me.
