Parting.

By , Wildwood, MO
In the middle of a sea of dark

You lay there dressed in light

Many words said in your praise

Surrounded by black clothed creatures

You stand out draped in white

In the middle of a sea of dark



Floating up into the heavens

You watch as you leave

You see me waiting patiently

The night embraces me

To see you come back

In the middle of a sea of dark



When you finally depart

Quick as the light

As the rest of them leave

I sit waiting

In the middle of the sea of dark



How did this happen, why me

Why now, we only just started

What could have lasted centuries

In the middle of a sea of dark

I sit and remember days gone by



In the middle of the sea of dark

One lone being leaves in silence

Having waited and waited

And finally losing hope

You gaze at me and turn your sorry head

In the middle of a sea of dark
