Raven

-

Distant voices in the charred night

Fluttering, echoes softly faded

Against the dimming light

Silent movements are shaded

So even now, within the darkness

The wings of fate are hidden

Blinded but nevertheless

I have followed this far

I won't be led astray

-

Delicate, this dark token I hold

Lightly it settles in my palm

As desire overwhelms the night cold

To the howling winds it is swept, gone

So even now, within the darkness

Traces of the past I cannot see

Lost amidst the faltering shadows

I can still hear your whisper

I won't let go of your hand

-

Searching within the darkness

Blinded but nevertheless

I follow

Forever will follow

The wings of fate

Into the shadows beyond
