"Free at last thank God might we are free at last" MLK

Gunshots fire in a nightmare of war
Praying not for the death knock at my door.The wanting of my courageous love to hold me in his arms.

Whenever, will my tears stop falling

A phone call here and a phone call there, It's not enough to fill the tear deep within my heart. You are like the hero now which that makes me proud.My love for you is so loud.

Whenever, will my tears stop falling

No it can't be, I don't want to believe it's true have the skies turned gray and my inside turned blue. Death has finally knocked at my door. The grim reaper knocks so loudly. For the message has been delivered to me. I'm a black widow

Now, my tear will not stop falling
