Difficult is not impossible - Relient K, "Hope for Every Fallen Man"

If all I had was love, would I still be lovely?
If all I gave was love, would you give up on me?
-House of Heroes, "Love is for the Middle Class"

Death awaits upon the stone,
heavy with the burden of breathing.
Take in, the stench of staleness,
let go, the ache of the lonesome.
As the sun steadily sets,
stretching shadows over the land
I will not be forgotten.

I don't know what this means, to be honest, but I love the phrases "stench of staleness" and "ache of the lonesome." They're beautifully expressive. Could you explain this poem for me? I'd really like to know what it means. :)
