  Standing over this abyss

I watch myself fall but there is nothing I can do

My arms out stretched but I miss

I watch as I fall into the darkness

Wondering how I fell in the first place.

 

Tears fill my eyes but I hold them back

Laughing from my behind fills my ears

A dark hearted fills my heart

So I jump to follow myself

 

Plummeting into the unknown

I fall free still wondering why

I turn to face the dark

There is something I see that I like

Deep shinning eyes are watching my decent

 

Something I seem to already know

Coming to a holt in mid air I realise what it is

It's the darker side of me

The side that fell before me

 

After a long embrace we begin to rise

Joint together as it always should have been

Out of the abyss we fly ready to face all that lay ahead

A new whole I have become with my brother right beside me
