Losses

The cathedral is empty and the silence is deafening,

Soft candlelight burns the air,

Shadows creep toward me from behind,

A statue of the Virgin Mary weeps beside me,

Soft candlelight burns the air,

Hundreds of souls whisper around me,

A statue of the Virgin Mary weeps beside me,

He is gone,

Hundreds of souls whisper around me,

I taste hot tears and feel the cool dampness,

He is gone,

Even his face is fading,

I taste the hot tears and feel the cool dampness,

The cathedral is empty and the silence is deafening,

Even his face is fading,

Shadows creep toward me from behind.
