The Light fades
Darkness enters me again
I lie on my bed
Waiting to fall asleep
And hoping it would never end

The shadow takes hold
Firm grip
Iron claws
No escape
Not even in myself

The last light fades
Dark is the world
The end is all
My heart no more

Let it have me
Cannot fight
Someone like me
Was never of the day

The shadow fades
Light returns
I do not
Cry no more

Less is all that remains
I don't mind
Do not regret
The red shadow I cast
I bring the light of Darkness
The light in me

Sleep now
Sleep in peace
Dream a gentle dream
Till kingdom come
