Bittersweet Love

Oh, sweet love,
How bitter your taste!
How I wish I never met you
So I would not feel this pain,
This yearning, this desire for you,
This hunger for your affection and time.

But without you, I would not have lived,
Nor chosen the greater road for me.
You are God's catalyst for me;
His Gift to me I also wish
But I hear your heart,
Oh, sweet love.

How sweet your taste!
