Shades of Death
The crimson sky at sunset, the heavens seem to bleed

The light behind to silhouette some long forgotten tree

As I gazed out to the sunset, so peaceful and serene

'Twas just another shade of death, death meant just for me

-

A waterfall enchanted crying tears into the stream

unforsaken in it's beauty, too beautiful to dream

A gorgeous sight to behold for all who chanced to see

'Twas just another shade of death, death meant just for me

-

The wind behind that whispered sacred secrets of the breeze

A gentle wind to calm and soothe, to soothe forgotten trees

The wind itself so sacred brings a mortal to his knees

'Twas just another shade of death, death meant just for me

-

The moon that filled the darkness, only light that man could see

Held aloft in graceful poise, lighting paths before my feet

It seemed a beacon from the gods, a ray of hope for me to see

'Twas just another shade of death, death meant just for me

-

The single rose before me with the mist upon its leaves

Picked by the hands of she I love, of she who fills my dreams

I shed a tear so deep inside for a thorn did make me bleed

'Twas just another shade of death, death meant just for me

-

A tender kiss in twilight, tender kiss upon my cheek

The soft, full lips I welcome softly breathe their love for me

A purer love that this, there shall surely never be

Still just another shade of death, death meant just for me

-

A warm embrace in holding, one true love meant just for me

A single touch to love and fear, a warmth to fill my dreams

A world of ethereal beauty, so peaceful and serene

In a tortured mind of torment, shades of death are all I see

-

With your head upon my shoulder, sharing your forgotten dreams

Perhaps it is I am twice the man, twice more than I think

Forever here, my warm shoulder, in your deepest time of need

'Tis just another shade of death, death meant just for me

-

Now you hold me with the warmth of a thousand endless dreams

Hate and love, forgiveness, empty through these tears that stream

For all my life an empty man, loving less than loving seems

'Tis just another shade of death, death meant just for me

-

Now all these things I hungered, all these things I feared to see

The tender kiss in twilight and the wind and sun and stream

A broken heart in hiding, too afraid of what I'll see

All these different shades of death, death meant just for me

-

Too alone to understand, too cold to ever see

That there is a world of beauty shining on to me

Your enigmatic eyes hold the answers to my dreams

One last enchanted shade of death, true love meant just for me
