When all the light is stolen from your face,
When nothing but the darkness there remains,
I understand that nothing can replace
The life that for so long held me in chains.
And when the dark of night has come around,
And when your light has faded from the world,
I understand that nothing will be found,
To fill the place where love was safely curled.
You are the light and purpose of my life,
You are my comfort when the world is stark
You cut my sorrows like a burning knife
You are the shield that keeps me from the dark.
So stay with me and never leave my side,
And let your light forever be my guide.
