Its Brilliant Beauty

Regina Puckett

A brave heart would watch you leave

And still have something in which to believe

But then I never promised to be brave or daring

I promised a love that was faithful and unsparing

I promised to be by your side through thick and thin

I promised if caught in the winds of change to never bend

I promised to believe when all others had turned away

But I never promised to beg you to love me or to stay

So I’ll not pretend to be brave or that it’s my duty

To watch our love die and lose its brilliant beauty
