Grave, Indeed

Eyes have somewhat adjusted

Hands are almost in view

The air is dry and falling short

I’m thinking now of you


The immediate world is stifling

But you can set me free

Come seek, my love, find me here

Please come now and save me


Oh, bring me from this darkness

The air it now draws thin

My love, I’m still waiting here

A shallow grave I’m in


Like being buried, yet alive,

Are feelings I’ll know best

Until you come to save me, dear

Until love manifests
