~When No One~

What are we all waiting for
hidden in the shadows,
lurking behind the past?
When no one sees,
when no one looks,
when no one tries
to comfort us.

One light soul I see
every thousand years
looking for a radiance
to comfort all the darkness.
What were they doing
consoling when no one was there?
When no one tries
to help us.

I know I wait
for something;
what, I do not know,
what, I do not care.
Why do I remember
when I see the darkness rising?
Darkness rises everywhere
when no one tries
to reassure us.

When no one knows,
when no one lives,
when no one loves,
when no one cares,
the world is ending
all around me...
