The Bell - Poem by Benedict Lestat

A friend lies down beneath my feet,
He´s cold, just like my heart.

I stand he lies and moves no more,
It tears myself apart.

I stand he lies and´ll never show the smile - we loved,
of warmth and kindness anymore.

So silence all the bells, give in.
Cry out all grief and pain.

His dreams, his fears, his soul within,
It all has been in vain.
