May 2018
I remember who she was
And I miss the happy girl
And I long to see her smile
She saw beauty in this world

But now she longs for silence
Her quiet is her home
She is beautifully broken
And the safest when alone

How could cold freeze such a heart
This candle was put out
She grew tired and forgot
What this life was all about

And maybe it should scare me
What the evil here can do
It dims the brightest fires
And it breaks the strongest, too
