Dying Embers

 

 

I awake...to the dawning of the truth

As I feel my heart strings...breaking loose

 Hoping you will understand...how hard I tired

 

I gave you all I had to give

My heart... my soul...to live within

I gave you wings... in hopes that you could fly

 

For alas...the dye was cast

And so... I say goodbye...at last

To a dream...that I...could not unfold

 

Embers in the fire growing cold
