As I draw upon my last breath.
I kiss her lips and wait.
I watch the carnival of lost souls.
Watch them all in their caravan.
On my weak body, I lay her hand.
How we laughed and played thru
the meadows of our heaven.
Though I have faith in the night.
My tear filled skin is soaked to the bone.
Love should not be, if it feels like this.
I should let the devil dance upon my grave.
"If it is true I never see you in the light of day again.
I shall be lost to the darkness forever more.
Belladonna, my love, do not leave me now.
I cannot bare to lose you this day.
There would be no life in this body.
If I did not have your love and kindness
bestowed upon me .
