Barely clinging to the ribbons of life

My bleeding heart beats on, beats on

Through shallow valleys of here and death

Light's crimson strings are gone, are gone

Life without you in slow decay

My soul's spark dwindling in hellfire's play

No physical comfort in velvet dark

No silken voices of two souls apart

No food nor drink and sleepless night

Pain's weight of sorrow beat down, beat down

Without the beauty and light of you

A withered wreck is found, is found

Beat out my heart to pulse to life

Away from distance's carving knife

An angel's wing to carry though

A prayer on the wind that I love you
