I Do Not Need The Light


cradle me in your comfort , night
hide me in your dark corners
for I no longer need  the light

keep me hidden from all sight
sign no hymns in consolation
cradle me in your comfort, night

there need be no candles bright
no shadows on my bosom fall
for I no longer need the light

for this lone road be my right
this dear passage I have earned
cradle me in your comfort, night

alone the falcon on his flight
soaring on it's endless quest
for I no longer need the light

In quiet comfort wrap me tight
there be peace behind the door
cradle me in your comfort, night
for I no longer need the light
