Dark Forest House

A dark room in a house no one remembers,

In a land no one can find;

Only those who know where to look,

Where to go.

-----------

Land without light, without hope or love

Choked by twisted trees and tangled undergrowth,

Forgotten by time and angels of old;

It sits alone and wastes away

Day after day.

------------

Hoping maybe someone remembers,

Someone kind enough to come back again

To fix up the sagging floorboards and broken windows,

Add light to a place full of darkness and despair,

And restore the hope of a time long past.

------------

Once full of laughter of small children;

A family we all wish we had.

Now nothing but the old house remembers

Or understands how much you miss

When all is lost.
