In fading light I see you,
Your touch no longer there.
Your heart still throbs beside me,
But no more your silken hair.,
Your morning’s breath is frozen,
No longer soothes the air,
But there you are beside me
And I know that still you care.
Forever in the sunrise
I’ll clutch the cross you bear,
Awaiting till the sun dies
That death we soon will share.
