Yes, this world is fleeting. 🥀 But is that a reason to make our lives a hard and bitter dust that hides its glow?
🎶 Lyrics from Dinah Washington's "This Bitter Earth," set to Max Richter's "On the Nature of Daylight"
This bitter earth
Well, what a fruit it bears.
What good is love,
That no one shares?
And if my life is like the dust
That hides the glow of a rose,
What good am I?
Heaven only knows.
Lord, this bitter earth
Yes, can be so cold.
Today you're young
Too soon, you're old.
But while a voice within me cries,
I'm sure someone may answer my call.
And this bitter earth
May not be so bitter after all.
