Choka – Endings (Into The Long Dark Night)

Choka – Endings (Into the Long Dark Night)

His heart is broken

All his secrets and losses

Deeply held inside

With each swiftly passing day

Time slipping away

He finds himself somehow back

Where he used to be

Facial lines becoming deep

In his heart he knows

He enters darkness alone

The sounds of the day

Fading to a quiet hum

Like his dreams falling

Silently down to the earth

Into the distance

He gazes at yesterday

His hands now tremble

As he dallies with his thoughts

In the nights alone

He feels the hours as they pass

Carrying such pain

He finds the sudden silence

After heavy rain

Awakens him in the night

 Leaves him wondering

If the wide halls of heaven

Have fallen empty

But for the endless echoes

Memories fading

Perhaps it is almost time

Evening shadows drift in

Colours of the day

Falling ever so gently

Down into the long dark night
