Promise to Love Me

You saw me there in the night A ghost come back to haunt the light The blood flowed from my veins Into the street and down the gutter You held me and closed my eyes And settled me down until my last breath Had left my body, my soul took flight You promised to love me and said it was alright Though we were strangers you showed compassion And so I have come back to visit your love For I know no other love in this world You give me hope in the darkness That I might see the light And know that I’m alright Ghostly passion is my might Something more than candle light Dripping upon the floor I love you for now and evermore
