“Is it with a kiss?” – Reflections on betrayal

25 Mar

Is it with a kiss that you betray?
Is it with a kiss, my friend, you demand your way?
Is it with a kiss, you send me to die?
Yes, it’s with a kiss. I cry. I cry.

Is it with a kiss, an expression of love?
Is it with a kiss, my friend, you try to look good?
Is it with a kiss, you say your good-bye?
Yes, it’s with a kiss. I cry. I cry.

Weep for the loss of one I love.
Weep for the love not yet understood.
Weep for the willful rejection of hearts.
O weep! I cry! I cry!

Is it with a prayer that you betray?
Is it with a prayer my friend, you demand your way?
Is it with a prayer, you say good-bye?
Yes, sometimes a prayer. I cry. I cry.

Is it with a hymn, a word of praise?
Is it with a gift, my friend, you’re offering today?
Is it with your worship, you betray?
Yes, sometimes in these. I cry. I cry.

Weep for the loss of ones I love.
Weep for the love not yet understood.
Weep for the willful rejection of hearts.
O weep! I cry! I cry!
