Lost XLII


  
Deep within our souls
We reach, extend, to touch
Fear becomes a shield
Protecting fragile hearts
Shattered many times from broken promises

Deep within our souls
We reach, extend, to touch
That hope one day may rise
To drop that battered shield
From all the blows taken left and right

Deep within our souls
We reach, extend, to touch
A love, to fill that hole
Carved from flesh and bone
Gaping from tears left overflowing

Deep within our souls
We reach, extend, to touch
A chance to repair
A desire to be reborn
With a love as true as death is sure

Deep within our souls
We reach, extend, to touch
A courage to live and love
To be a giving, caring soul
Who you are, is who I am

Deep with our souls
We reach, extend, to touch
The loss of time taken from us all
To be forgiving as much as to forgive
For all the stupid, selfish things done
