There is a haunting darkness here inside
With fear so sinister I cannot hide—
Raging heart, beating out its silent plea.
The darkness here beside me has no face;
It has no name but weight I cannot bear
To hold and a cold, a dead embrace
That pulls those roots within until they tear.
I am falling, hard and fast, swallowed whole.
When I hear your breath, feel its golden ray
Upon me—hope familiar to my soul.
A hand, a heart, a light, a promised day.
Be my anchor in this rising river,
Hold me close to you tonight, forever.
