In the darkness of all shadows, I close my eyes,
In the blind blissful lies of the world my heart tries to hide.
When I reach out my hand, I feel nothing-it’s all empty.
Deceptions of the world has left me bruised and beat.
I open my mouth to say something-to cry out for help.
But nothing come out, my voice is lost, abandoned by myself.
Just when all hope is seemingly gone, I look and to see-
A speck of light, filtering the ebony, shining right towards me.
Before when my hands found none but air,
Now I reach out I look and I see you’re there.
I was alone, by myself, left for a lie.
I realized, at that moment that you will be at my side.
Through the good, the bad and the adventures we had-
You’ve always been there when I was happy and sad.
We strove to be things we thought we never were
But in the end we found it rotten to the core. The specks of light grows ever so brighter,
Closer and closer it came.
And just when I though it was within my grasp-
It soared and flew away.
So close yet so far, that I always knew.
But those who believed in it there were always few.
As of now, you are gone, perhaps even moved on.
But when I need guidance, support-
Your spirit lingers on.
Through the darkness, through storm
Through the raging fire
You were with me, you held my hand.
You were always there.
But now you’ve gone, torn away, closed your eyes forever.
I think about you, no longer in flesh and I begin to shiver.
You’re not there, now a shadow
Mere reflection of where you once were.
Nothing can replace you-you were my only.
And you were always there.
