Shadow

pray for me, sister
the shadow has fallen
and no sweet smile can untuck his hand
from mine
will i walk with shadow all the time

pray for me, sister!
his feet are lockstep with mine
the devourer’s fill cannot come this time
i am too weak for the climb
must i walk with shadow all the time

pray for me, sister!
our swords are crossing
my steps are slowing
just one good thrust and I’m through
must i fight this shade all the time

yes, yes, yes
i will
