lost in silence – powerless,
a lonely, quiet night
without sweet love to keep me warm
or arms to hold me tight
lay in dark in straight hard bed
a distant place to be
where dreams seem far and hopes just blur
through eyes that strain to see
thoughts of love of may have been
of life unfair and lone
pull my knees up to my chest
a dreamer on my own.
and what if i am left like this?
forgotten and unfed
where all those years have left me dry
lone in life and bed.
with time my foe and space too much
and silence hiding tears
i curl up tight, alone in life
where i have been for years:
