before I go to bed tonight
and all my secrets fear the light
where but twice you used to occupy the day
the mirror reflects my recent dismay
a shadow around the sacred ground
leads closer to the lost than found
and butterfly wings beat a meloncholy scene
that vanishes when I begin to sleep
only a flicker of my memory
will you be there to keep me company?
or will I fend for myself this night
wishing for you with all my might?
