They fell the trees to darkness in no words this sound,
Can we take a breath empty dark souls cling to the lost.
Our heart beats sound the coming to Earth our child we are unborn.
Fire of soil across mountains in chaos drown replenish this life,
Never to the fallen until these skies burn out to say goodbye.
We pass this night time sit for while let’s talk my soul.
Beacons across the land never lost come home to me now,
I lost my mother the truth of this caves the mind no justice.
Suffering and pain talking through light we are here now.
Fly my soul never to return the fact that no one cares lost now,
Hold my hand as death haunts us both tonight were can, we begin.
Upon thousands of miles next door lost to life I see you.
Life has no time do not cast fears upon your mind heal now,
There is no ever ending time this physical body distorts.
Sound out the drums do not fall shake away this death not to step away.
There is nothing like a mother’s cry at lost children to our hearts,
Living these many years broken bones surpass and time this time,
The cancer lives in our mind this our penance rebuke we are islands.
Read no tears you are loved life is given to take away not of your own hand,
Knowledge will conquer upon some days falling to the pit passing by.
Lift out of darkness I still see you their cat like form peace is the way today.
I digress grasp these moments ask the light open hands to the future,
You are now with me planting oak trees let them grow these many years.
I can hold you to forget all caress the light I love you.
