REBIRTH

THE WIND IS CHANGING DIRECTION
THE COLD IS ROLLING IN
I DON'T RECOGNIZE MY OWN REFLECTION

THE DAYS OF DARKNESS FALL NEAR
THE WAVES IN THE WATER STAND STILL
THINGS, NO LONGER WHAT THEY APPEAR

IM LOST IN A TUNNEL SECLUDED OF LIGHT
BLIND IN MY OWN MIND
QUESTION THE ARRIVAL OF SUMMERS NIGHT

SILENCE RINGS IN TERROR, MUTE AND ABSOLUTE
UNCERTAIN OF TOMORROW
MIRROR IMAGES OF THOUGHTS ASTUTE

ISOLATED FROM EVEN MY OWN WORD
WONDERING INSANELY
EVERY ANSWER SEEMS ABSURD

THE PRESENCE OF YOU LOVE HAS GONE
IM BROKEN HEARTENED
MY TEARS NO LONGER BREAK THE DAWN

AGAIN I WILL FEEL THE WHISPERS ON MY PILLOW
THE WARMTH UPON MY SMILE
IN A FIELD FREE AS A WILLOW

DARE NOT TEST MY WILL TO HEAL
IM STRONG AND PROUD
THE SECRETS I CONCEAL

A WOMAN OF MUCH MYSTERY
A DELIGHTFUL SOUL
MY PAIN LIKE THE PAST IS HISTORY

THE BLISTERING MEMORY OF YOU       
LINGERS NO MORE
MY FUTURE CLEAR AND SET ANEW

WHAT ONCE HELD ME BACK WAS FEAR
GRIPPING SO TIGHTLY
FORBIDDING SIGHT OF SOMETHING SO CLEAR

LAUGHTER FILLS MY THROAT
CAUSE NOW I KNOW THE TRUTH
AND IF I MAY FOR A MOMENT, GLOAT

THE STRENGTH IN MY STEP UNBREAKABLE
CONFIDENTLY AWARE AND ALERT
HAPPINESS BOUND UNMISTAKABLE

The End
