Reign Of Light

I walk the edge of darkness

And fall deep into the pit

I am surrounded by the blackness

All around I feel darklings sit

Who will help me out of this despair

As I sink deeper into this nightmare

In the void of my mind, who is there

Only my shadow, my sadness I share

But she comes and shines so bright

She takes me by my hand as I cry

She has come, my reign of light

Up from this dark place we will fly

I feel her goodbye kiss on my lips

And falls down against my will

Back into the blackness she slips

As I cry, she is in the darkness still
