When your   hungry heart, cries out for love

And there is none to hear its cries

When all your wells of love dry up,

And, all your loves have died

When your tearful eyes look up to God

And, there is none to hear your plea.

When all your world seems lost and gone,

My love, just think of me


When Judas heads your list of friends,

And forces you to run

To run from Life; from God; to Death,

Like the swiftly ebbing sun

When hemlock laces every cup,

And Life forces you to drink

The bitter dregs of Yesterday;

And leaves you on the brink


When your world crumples beneath your feet;

And there’s none to wipe your tears

When your Sun’s eclipsed by depthless Night

And your heart crowded with fears

When you run, with clumsy; shackled feet

To clutch the dying sun,

My love, I’ll be besides you-

My love to guide you on.


When the Swan sings out its dying song,

And, death throttles your soul

When bleeding Life lies, broken;

Lost; forlorn, with aimless goals

When all alive, just rushes on

To escape that Fate of Death

My love, I’ll be besides you,

To battle with your Storms
