Ablaze

( a Quatern )  


I thought with faith Iíd keep the light ablaze;  
Thereíre things about myself I tried to fix.  
The Reaper stood in black with cards it plays,  
I threw my challenge down before his tricks.  

Thereís no way Iíd give in without a fight,  
I thought with faith Iíd keep the light ablaze.  
I stood my ground and showed I felt no fright,  
The Reaperís echoed words told of my days.  

A feeling of resolve in my malaise  
Came to me as I set forth strong demands.  
I thought with faith Iíd keep the light ablaze,  
My birthright to control the shifting sands.  

A grin of Reaperís maw almost like hate,  
The figure of my death begins to raise. †
The sound of laughter finally seals my fate;  
I thought with faith Iíd keep the light ablaze.
