Dawn To Dusk

Welcome to my world...
My world will kill your fear.
This world of mine is full of love,
Yet emptiness is near.

I turn 'gainst my mind,
This world my mind creates.
And every night I flee to you,
But 'neath my heart it waits.

Shadows reaching forth,
They brush my world and tease.
My feelings blow like Autumn winds
And dance about the leaves.

I can't find you here,
Your fingers slip from mine;
I lose you to these Autumn winds
That dance about the night.

The darkness finds me,
I'm lost without your dawn.
I'd welcome you into my world...
But now it seems you're gone.
