Dying Rivers of Sorrow (Version 2)

I could hold the dying secret inside my heart
let my tears fall so I can release the wonderful pain
Will you ever look at me again
the way you used to
You promised me what no other could give

I return to the empty forest every night
I grieve solemnly because I can never reach you
You entice me and I follow
just to find myself lost
Did you ever realise what you put me through?

I still wait by the dying rivers of sorrow
Hoping you change your mind
But you never appear
You left me alone
and alone I remain

I still bear the travesties of his spite
you still bought me harm through your grace
I could never gaze upon
your beauty again
It hurts so much to be reminded of who passed me by

I return to the shadows every night
All the dreams we harboured have drifted
through your loveless soul
I never felt so damaged
to collapse upon a bed of lilies

I still wait by the dying rivers of sorrow
Hoping you change your mind
But you never appear
You left me alone
and alone I remain

I still treasure
the time we shared together
Even as it burns through my desolate life
Your life has become a paradise

I still wait by the dying rivers of sorrow
And for the rest of my life
I will remain alone

The End
