He turns away with his head in his hands

And endless tears pouring from inside

While he sees her lifeless body

The icy film that covers her eyes

***

He reaches out and touches her face

And wipes the blood off with his hand

After with heartache, her hand in his

His sight blurry as he stands

***

He finally collapses, and with tears pouring

Embraces the girl he came to love

Realizing late she'll never return

And that sorry just won't be enough

***

He lifts her up and carries her

Past the flashing hazard's rays

Into the trees, engulfed by the night

Leaving the stunned highways

***

The blinding lights, both blue and red

Search the broken site unbound

Searching among the devastating crash

Where those two souls were never found

***

"The two were lost, a boy and girl

Both victims to a horrible wreck

The tree had fallen, their heads turned

As they spiraled into an embankement"

***

The investigators had almost quit

And then they found a lead

It forced them away from where they were

And under a calm oak tree

***

The dead oak grew to 40 feet

But stopped when lightning danced with thunder

Under, they looked, their sights fell upon

A girl who appeared to be in a slumber

***

And too, they saw, she couldn't breathe

But around the corner they would find

A poor boy whispering to her body

A poor boy who had lost his mind...
