Heartbeat in the Night

Blue skies in deep dark corruption
Starlit and shining with desire
Night swelling in clouded disruption
Blinding the front in a siege of fire

Clouds of grief melt into silence
Showers of steel engage in violence
The heartbeat of warriors amidst the pain
Falters and swells in lonely rain

Souls of a hundred soldiers breath in the fight
Thousands of heartbeats sing in the night
Best friends at heart, at truth they are brothers
Sworn to fight side by side and protect each other

The best they can offer is more than needed
That they tried is proof that they've succeeded
Heartbeats in the night
That cannot be defeated
