Laying here upon my bed
Unwanted feelings running through my head,
Bringing feelings of hopelessness and dread
Visions of all happiness being dead
No one to talk to day or night,
The spirit of Loneliness I constantly fight!
The appearance of this Specter brings such a fright,
No matter be it day or night!
Leave my chamber you foul beast!
And let this feeling you bring cease!
And as it flees, again I feel peace,
From it's grip I feel release!
Was happiness to much to ask?
Or a true love that will grow and last?
Is it too much - too great a task?
For me does love wear a mask?
Will I ever be released from all my tears?
From great sadness and crippling fears?
This empty feeling deepens and sears,
The evil Specter stands and leers!
Will I ever know the love of a man?
Fore I'm doubting I ever can!
Does love truly exist in this land?
Will someone come and claim my hand?
The love of a good man is what I long for,
Will he come to rescue me - walk through my door?
Shall I ever know happiness once more,
Or shall I know only Loneliness forever more?
