Darkness overshadows the light;
Another night settles in.
An eerie quiet fills the air,
As birds and crickets fall silenced.
No wind flutters the leaves,
The world drifts to nothingness.
Hearts slowly beat while hopes dim.
Grayness fills once vibrant eyes,
Hair grows thin and bones turn brittle.
Soon everything may turn to ash,
If there is no saving grace.
Will the breezes blow once more,
And the sun bring its light,
Will the wilderness find its voice,
And our hearts know love once more?
