This Bittersweet Life

(click title to read lyrics)
Words and music by Garrison Doles

Tenderly
These beloved her around you
Gather them
In your embrace
Faithfully
Though the storm surround you
Stand your ground
Lift up your face

It’ll break your heart
All along the way
Measure out your tears
Pay the price
But a broken heart
Is not too much to pay
For savoring the wine
Of this bittersweet life

Joyfully
Let laughter wash right through you
Give yourself
Into its care
Gratefully
Every hour given to you
Offer as a blessing and a prayer

It’ll break your heart
All along the way
Measure out your tears
Pay the price
But a broken heart
Is not too much to pay
For savoring the wine
Of this bittersweet life
Drink deeply the wine
This bittersweet life
