"Pain to Hope"

There is a pain
a pain of losing
of losing so much
so much that could be
could be made and done
and done with joy
with joy and friends
and friends who cry
who cry for their pain
their pain is true
is true and strong
and strong friends try
friends try to help
to help each-other through it
through it to better times
better times that can come
can come once more
once more with love
with love there is
