Choka – Loss (In This Darkening Autumn)

So cold it is now

Fear opens her black silk wings

And dark butterflies

Flutter silently within

The helpless tremblings

Of a single candle flame

Painting long shadows

In this darkening autumn

Our secrets still held

Promises never broken

So many long years

Yet winter calls us at last

And your hand slips into mine
