The nightmares haunt me every single night
Distraction fails, I hum an old sweet song
What used to be a dream, is now a fright
This awful pain has gone on far too long
I wear dark bruises on my legs and arms
Tears pierce my cheeks like the blade of a knife
I seek some shelter from the endless harms
I fear the worst for my once normal life
My sobs, drowned by a graceful melody
A ghostly presence stands in front of me
Chills slowly start to creep through my body
A luminous gleam shines for me to see
Strength is delivered from the man I love
My answered prayers come from skies above
