I Took A Walk

I took a walk right off the edge.
And lost my balance on the ledge.
To fall so deep in my abyss.
I can't remember what I miss.

The time goes by at it's own pace.
And leaves me trying to save some face. 
To search my soul and find a trace.
In hopes I'll find my saving grace.

The air I breath is getting cold.
As autumn has been bought and sold.
The trees are bare and seem to stare.
As old man winter has not a care.

I took a walk as far as night.
Until the sun was out of sight.
To find a place to warm my heart.
Someone to love and not depart.

A lonely man knows all too well.
How to be cold and burn in hell.
But still he searches for the light.
And walks to not give up the fight.
