He was the candle by my frozen bones He was flesh bound to a broken soul He was the keeper of my monster he was each stoke of broken coal He was the seaside drone that called He was the light that beckoned me He was each wave that reached my feet and bottom wave that tumbled free He was the song that bellowed low He was the sun that hung too high He was the tears that flood my kingdom and then the arms that helped me dry He was the love that kept me well He was my crutch and loving smother He was the candle by my frozen bones and now he warms another

    `Very Touching Is Your Beauty's Verse Beautiful, Dana'lynn ~ I Believe If We Look Into Anothers Heart No One Would Wish To Find Even A Drop Of Pain There ? But Tis The Way Within This World Especially These Days It Seems; Albeit A Century Be But A Moment That Has Passed ? I Find You Far Too Beautiful To Ever Have To Fret About Being Loved So, Look Ahead ~ Thank You For Your Lovely Visit Twas Quite Wonderful! ~ Love, John

    Sounds like a well written love gone wrong song. It kept my interest to the end. I will call again soon..... Jake
