If I sit here, quietly
In this internal darkness
While the sun whitewashes
All our prayers and promises
Will the warmth of day
Bear softly away
Those terrible truths of yesterday?
If I leave this coil
For just a little while
Will you forget the love
I blessed you with?
Is your heart as true
As mine to you?
Or is the fool I’ve played my only friend?
