In an Hour of Darkness


In an hour of darkness,
Held hostage in the past,
A victim of my very soul,
Places I could never take you,
Came rushing back to haunt me,
And left darkness in the road.

I knew that someday,
I would be returning,
To face that darkness once again.
But I was not alone this time,
For you felt my teardrops,
As they whispered on the wind.

You listened to my heart,
And like a beacon in the dark,
You were the torch that lit the way.
Then you led me through your eyes,
To places I could never find,
And released me from the pain.

Those once haunting ghosts,
That were pulling me so close,
Are now vanquished from the night.
And as the darkness folds,
I have come back home,
And can finally see the light.

And in the light of day,
I still can see your face,
But everything's anew.
As beyond the night we grow,
I hope you'll always know,
How much.. is thanks to you.
