Strength to Let Go
The moonless night, black as ink,
Motionless and quiet.
All that's heard are snarling beasts,
Nose in the air sniffing out
Your worst fear. Those
Hell hounds constantly
Gnashing at your feet.
Your past and present demons
Trying to shackle you
In your own nightmares
While you kick and thrash in protest.
Nobody can hear you scream,
For the war is waged in your mind
As the enemy tries to gain foothold
Inside your heart, your soul.
Fight like hell my beloved,
Don't let them win.
When you feel faint from exhaustion,
Dip your hands in my chest and
Wrap your fingers 'round my heart,
Energize yourself with my love...
'tis truth that two are stronger than one.
I'll fight with you, right by your side.
Together we can beat this evil foe!
Take my hand and rise my sweet,
We'll fight like hell 'til we tame the beasts,
'til they lie on their backs under your feet.
