The Lament
Across the dust my steps do fade
Silence has chipped all life away
The night is long; my breath is drawn
For silence is a lonely song.

Beneath the stars my love does lay
Where I shall fall and weep and pray
Caught in the rain; lost in dismay
I drop more tears upon thy grave.

Sober skies and stained glass eyes
All precious ways for thee to die
False angels weep; my love for thee
Remains a secret not to keep.

Now courage waits the hour when
I break my hands and bury them
My sorrows borne; thy beauty torn
The night is long... I love no more.

When a loved one is lost, hearts are broken... a truly sad part of life.
