A cry is made in the dark of the night,
Shrill and cold, filled with fright.
The stars shutter to hide behind clouds,
The wind whispers, beneath nights shroud.
A whimper, a cry, from far, far away,
A dream, a memory refusing to give way.
Pain that breaks the heart and the soul,
Then hushed away as morning bells toll.
A prayer is sent to the heavens above,
A soul is lost and is begging for love.
A tear is shed from eyes, blinded by fear,
As loneliness engulfs the innocent here.
