I’m afraid now

The great bear drowning in the sand
and reaching out

And the darkness here is grim
But it found us, surrounded

In these moments of loss and torment
When the vast skies don’t seem to call to you
When the weight of this world bears down
And the stars have fallen like tears

I am with you always
From the darkness of night
Until the morning
I am with you always
From life until death takes me
