Whispering For A Father

I yearn for the silence of the madness around me ,
Finding solace in the darkness to hold and cradle me in this twilight of tears

I am a withering rose slowly dying
 as life giving water of my fathers love will never fall upon my heart
 my soul dreams no more for happiness

I find refuge in the shadows
Where fates kiss of farewell surely falls upon me
I try to hold onto memories †melody to the rhythm
 Of my broken heart
Whispering the words to a fading song that none shall hear

There is no peace in my heart for what can be of setting me free
when I know you are my father
I may never receive your love
In this lifetime
l wish For the darkness to cradle me gently as i drift to sleep under the moonlit sky

Let me be the shadow between night and day
the shadow of a untouched heart
and song that only the wolves will sing

The night sky will be lit by the fragments of my broken heart
 my tears will be the falling stars †

My orphaned soul will whisper to you upon the wind that touches your face

Yet you shall never hear me say I hate you

Let it be my darkness
trapped between heaven and hell
for none can touch the sadness of my fatherís rejection

I will wonder alone in the shadows longing for a fathers love that can never be

My eyes will speak where my heart cannot
for it is slowly fading away in the shadows
of pain that shall never perish

Let the world know you are everything to me and
as I fall upon the world
my sadness will be forever winds whispering for a father
