Do I Pray [Sep. 19th, 2004|05:29 pm]
runway four


I place the candle by your bedside
and wish you a pleasant sleep
I'll watch over you, I promise
and that promise I will keep
the wrinkles on your skin
I now do see
your much older
then I ever thought you to be
my eyes become alive now
the candle light guiding the way
I wish you didnt look so frail
and for that do I pray
sitting by your beside
the candles getting low
soon it will be out
and someone will have to go
I wish with all my heart
this time would never come
but I see the shadow creeping closer
and soon I realize we must part
I take your gentle hand in mine
as I wipe my silent tears away
the shadows consumed you now
Ill never forget this day
now there is no more light for us
the candle has been hushed
its golden light can no longer be seen
and so I take the candle away
and wish you a safe journey
and for that do I pray
