Shelter

Can you hear the silence?
Can you see the darkness?
Help me fix the broken
To show me where my heart is

As the sighing summer sun
Frowns at me in hot contempt
All hope in me does lie in you
And the letters that I wish I sent

From the slumber of my days
To the hazy evening light
You remain the one I need
Just keep me sheltered through the night

Like a song that’s left unsung
The pages burnt before they’re read
Or a flower that dies in early spring
You’re but a concept stuck in my head

And it pains to see you so
To make the stars align for me
To end all conflict and suffering
To solve the world and worlds to come

In the hour of my return
Fondly my eyes will meet yours
It was written so it shall be done
You are the hands to heal my sores
