Dark foggy haze,
everywhere my eyes gaze.
People and time go by,
like shadows fallen from night sky.
I see myself alone, lost and cold,
trying desperately to be bold.
Hands outstretched forever reaching,
heart and mind forever seeking.
Simple compassion and understanding,
for sins of my youth yet demanding,
their price upon my soul still outstanding.
Hope fades from thought,
for peace a lifetime sought.
Patiently waiting for that day,
when my nightmares will be held at bay.
And I could see all around me so clearly,
made bright by suns rays so dearly.
