Soul of my Soul

Soul of my soul,
Come to my rescue.

Heart of my heart,
Dare I ask it of you?

A short-lived leaf of a flower,
Dead in the oblivious dark.

A place of hunger and thirst,
To this hell I embark.

This, I did not foresee,
It's as a theif in the night.

It crept up on me,
There was no way to fight.

I am afraid,
For sweetness, happiness and joy,

This gold is lock tight,
In the eyes of a boy.

I fear pain does not die,
I fear dreams will burn to dust.

I keep you in my heart,
Are there none to trust?
