Shadows

Leave the shadows,
Find the light.
Let your weary
Soul take flight.

Here’s the thing—
I guess you know—
Your time is up;
It’s time to go.

Don’t be afraid—
Your family’s fine.
You can’t go back,
We’ve crossed that line.

Like I said,
Just come with me.
It’s more than worth it—
Wait and see.
