On a journey through the dark,
Hands outstretched finding a way.
Hope is small within my heart,
As I walk the stranger way.
Swiftly do my fears combine,
To hedge the way before me.
Terror strikes beneath my skin,
As all turns to blood and bone.
But I feel within the abyss,
Your hands wrap around my own.
And with your tears and whispered love,
Break down the growing walls.
Together we move along a path,
Now more clear than when I began.
I see a light burning bright within you,
Kindling my hopes once more.
