The Other Side
On the other side of love I stopped to rest
And look around and test
The knowledge I had found.
I found the scenery I had passed
Was passing too, and could not last.
Nor could I grasp it, traveling through.
If you should come this way,
It will not be the same for you.
You will find it changes too.
You may think to follow in my steps,
Through love and hate and all the rest
Do you think when love and hate and joy are gone
That maybe hope can linger on?
On the other side of hope I paused
I rested by a stream I found and caused
The shining waters, seen
To wash my memories clean.
Where light abounds
Beyond my love, beyond my hope and joy
All troubles cease
The greatest gift is mine to find.
Creators perfect peace
Makes mine a tranquil mind.
