Darkness

I feel it in my chest
The pain pierces my to the quick
A longing like I have never known
A yearning for love and peace

I listen to the night
The sound of the wind in the trees
I hear it's hollow cry
Echoing in my soul

The raindrops fall around me
Running down my face
And mixing with my tears
Washing away the pain

I look up into the stars
I pray for peace and healing
Take my pain away
And let my heart begin to heal

I cry out to the moon
Show me what love is
Let me taste it
And let me sleep in peace

Wrap the cloak of darkness
Around my when I sleep
Let me find the peace I need
And slowly will come healing.
