Jack, I Swear
The subtle trace of breeze upon my face,
The sound of crackling embers as they fade,
The biting cold that rips my weakened heart,
The words catch in my throat, too long delayed.
I feel the breath of whispered words so near,
They comfort through the thin cold mountain air.
That time of fear and longing intertwined
Just for one sweet moment more - I swear.
When day is done I lie upon my bed,
Each lonely night, the same repeated prayer
To meet you once again in twilight sleep.
For just one single dream of you I swear
To say Id give my life is not enough,
This weathered weary hearts not worth a dime.
The tragic truth will haunt me all my days,
Ill bear the cross of blame that's surely mine.
And as I slowly wake to morning rain,
I taste the tears still wet upon my face.
So desperate to reclaim my restless sleep,
Unwilling to release your sweet embrace.
But yes, the cold gray morning always finds me,
It knows not of my dreams and doesn't care,
And so I rise to face the life I've chosen.
But oh, things would be different, Jack, I swear.
The world would be so different, I swear. Current Mood: melancholy
