Alone


I remember the night you left in the morning near daybreak

You silently stole from the room

Running back to the one who possessed the burden on your soul;

The creators of the darkness within.

I've grown so tired, yet I am not permitted to sleep

Afraid to dream of you- afraid you will not return to us

You cling to a past that gnaws the kindness within you

Always searching for Mom's bright light

Who will bring you back from where there is no return

I don't want to be alone. I want you forever at my side

I will hold my brother and father with fists of iron to me

I couldn't stand to stay here without you
