Ask not (her)

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

Ask not that we loved her
For how much can we say?
We loved, how we loved her
Each and every day

Ask not of our feelings
For they are numb like clay
Love now has no answers
For why she’s gone away

Ask not of the future
In that we see no light
But help us in our darkness
Through this whole endless night

Ask not of our courage
For fail it will again
Yet love will be around us
Sustaining us through pain

Ask not why it happened
For reason plays no part
In mending forever
Broken pieces of the heart
