Shadowed realities

\

I sit in a darkened room,

Dreaming of you.

Of the day when I shall hear your voice

And see your face.

\

When skin touches skin,

What will happen then?

Will you fade from this reality?

Will I be consumed from within?

\

But that day shall not come to pass,

For this time of shadow will not last

The cold light of day begins to show

O'er the sill of my window

\

As the dawn sun rises,

My hopes for the future flee.

But before the left I saw,

Not just you and me,

But this shadowed world united,

A family, living free.

\

But what would happen,

Should skin touch skin?

Would you fade from this reality?

Would I be consumed from within?

\

No, you will not,

For I will not let you,

Not while you're still needed here

\

No, I shall not.

For you will not let me,

Not while this world still needs me.

\

To heal our shadowed world

And bring again the dawn of unity

We must stand together,

Skin touching skin,

And heal this shadowed world from within.
