This bitter earth

This bitter earth

What fruit it bears

What good is love

That no one shares

And if my life is like the dust

That hides the glow of a rose

What good am I

Heaven only knows

This bitter Earth

Can it be so cold

Today you’re young

Too soon your old

But while a voice

Within me cries

I’m sure someone

May answer my call

And this bitter earth

May not be so bitter after all
