Written by: Patrick Cornwall

He woke with hope and love for the new day

And darkness met him and betrayed

The hope vanished but brought  cleansing

And like the  soldier onto  knee bending


If You are there help me like a bottle of wine

A slight burn and You grow and deny


It was only one time and her heart lies

Spelled it out and written by

He was there between each adjective

That holy love linked each conjunctive


If You came with your advice

Her love cost more and price


In front of the screen he touched the keys

Writing the note with hope  relieves

But she has deleted his record and moved over

In a seedy hotel they meet and my love choked her


You told me once You told me twice

My love was cooked with bitter spice
