Candle (Dissolving In The Dawning)

Another day dawns

A silent wave of crimson and gold

Breaking across the night

Yet in my heart

As the heavens paint the earth

The darkness lingers

You are so far away love

And each time my heart seeks yours

Returning alone

The grief deepens

Tears trace a path

From the liquid pools of my eyes

Which only long to see your sweet face

And I am dissolving

In the dawning

Like a candle

That is burning itself away
