Darkness hurls forward at lightening speed

Colorscapes drain to faded gray

The cool air soothes my flaming skin

As I kneel down to pray.

I listen to the crickets sing

Hear the distant chime of bells

Look into the moonless sky

Hear the stories that it tells.

Cloaked in bitter hearbreak

Shoes are gray and worn

Old breath escapes my trembling lips

Tears fill my eyes once more.

My heart can see her beauty

Her brilliant bright green eyes

But Her smiles' a faded memory

She was my angel in disguise

My saving grace my steady hand

The only light I ever knew

She saw the good and loved the bad

Her heart was pure and true.

If God could only hear my cry

He'd send her back to me

So I scream into the darkness

God hear my desperate plea...
