Bitter Sweet Note

Now comes the part
You’ve heard it before
The balance of the symphony fades
The one bitter sweet
sustained note
Piercing your ears
your heart
your soul
And it just goes on forever
Relentless and strange

It sears
It can’t last forever
You know it can’t last . . .
But it does
And you just want to know
Why . . .

Suddenly it relents
harmonies and rhythms
Returns your heart
into your hands
It does little to stop the suffering
But it does release you

You knew
but now you understand
You believe
