Light

We turn around from the streets we once knew,

Now empty with no light in sight.

The silence echoes as I watched how we gave up on this fight.

 

I shout your name but you couldn’t hear me –

Still I ran towards you.

But like a ghost, you couldn’t see… because you weren’t looking through.

 

So I looked… I looked into those eyes – those eyes now empty and bare.

Couldn’t you see?

No… I guess not, because those eyes weren’t looking at me.

 

And then she came, she came just right on time.

To lead you out of this shattered place.

But why –Why would you put it all to waste?

 

Wasn’t this your home – wasn’t this the home that we tried to build?

I know it’s dark.

But I lit a candle – but I guess it too had lost its spark.

 

So I watched you go – I watched as you left these streets we once knew,

Now empty.. with no light in sight.

I knew….. that we lost this fight.
