Thief in the Night

To love and lose - what greater pain
could e’er infuse a mortal frame?
as if the thief of love was wise
and gave relief in pain-felt guise

and with the pain came a release
removing strain, inducing peace

The silent scream at last broke free
in life-like dream, as if to be
meant suffering so great, unending
an offering of spirit’s sending

encompassing the spans of being
promising a final freeing
of every heart that ever broke
was torn apart but never spoke

of burden born within the mind
as scream was torn through symbol, sign
of greater love, complete, unerring
from up above in gentle sharing

that spoke of one great heart that bled
bright as the sun as tears were shed
for the sake of ending pain
to thus remake true love’s refrain

to find the worth in love’s emotion
and deeper meaning of devotion

The world’s grief was given vent
in one dream, brief and heaven sent
What greater love could ever be
than love of thief who set us free?
