De l'ABONDANCE du COEUR To care is to live with a weight A weight that pushes, preys and bates your very bones A weight that skimps against your skin, wisps within your ears Fills yours thoughts with worries, with pains and ever-flowing tears This weight it fills your soul with everlasting fears Likewise, each year, love grows as lifetime nears For the larger grows your heart, the tighter grows the strain And the greater grows the rain, the more of yourself You blame Is the anguish worth the idyll? You cannot help but ask Is this life of love good fortune? A burden? The answer grasps your back A voice, a face, a creature in a mask A friend, a foe, a being dressed in black He softly speaks your thoughts, he chatters like a bat Though love is paired with pain, that pain is love itself That stress, that guilt, that pressure, that weight that you must bare Is there because you want it, is there because you care To love and be loved back is all that one can ask A creature with a voice, a friend dressed all in black From your heart he knows the truth to all that you can ask "Good fortune is the answer" He whispers from your back
