deeper still

In the tears you gave to me
I found a river to an ocean
A concrete sky and a stone cold sea
That came to where the emptiness cracked open

And all my fears came crashing through
And met the fire of my sorrow
But I found my strength in forgiving you
I never even dreamed how far my heart could go

To give my life beyond each death
From this deeper well of trust
To know that when there’s nothing left
You will always have what you gave to love

In this life, the love you give
Becomes the only lasting treasure
And what you lose will be what you win
A well that echoes down too deep to measure

A silver coin rings down that well
You could never spend too much
A diamond echoes deeper still
And you’ll always have what you gave to love
You will always have what you gave to love

(David Wilcox – Deeper Still)
