Lost In The Darkness - Poem by R.M. Wright

I sit alone in the darkness.
Crying out to free my soul.
Silent screams falling on deaf ears.
Fear clouds my heart, hoping for a sign.

Lost in the darkness,
I wander alone looking for where you went
Living in agony as I stray between truths and lies,
I pray to God “let her stay.”

The shadows cover my world
I stare through tear filled eyes
I want to embrace you
I want to keep you near me, never let you go.

Seeking a sign, looking for your smile,
The light that is you, gone.
My memories keep you close to me,
The truth will free my soul.

I try to find my way back to you,
I search for a sign, looking for your light
I just need to know, I need to know what happened
Trying to understand, I don’t want to lose you.

Never stop hoping that I am dreaming
And you are near me when I wake
Hoping you’re in heaven so no one can hurt you
Give me a sign you’re ok.

Lost in the darkness
I cry silent tears, asking for a sign
Remind me that life is worth it all
Remind me so I can go on.

I keep searching, never stop hoping until my dying day
I keep your memories near me
The memories help ease the pain
As I try to find my way back to this life.
