Hope, Faith and Future

Never had it before but what do I have now?
Solid water running through my fingers,
And a faceless mortician examines my death,
While there is still a breath and a spark in me,
Behind the dark in me, but I see that it lingers.

O trust me, I want to - or dare I still?
My heart full of love but my head whispers doubt,
I fight and believe, have faith and believe,
Much less to reprieve, just hold on and move on,
Forward, can this be, in silence I shout.

But promise, I dive, take it head on, headlong
Into the truth, a leap I can do - with you to be
One forever, ever after and never we will
Let the dark tear us apart, fight for our life,
That doubt is dispelled, spelled 'you and me'.
