My Dear, My Love

My dear, my dear.
My love, My love.
Why do you fear?
The night is longer than I knew.
Stay, soon the sun will bring the day.
I must go, it continues to be dark.
It won’t forever be night.
I can’t see the stars.
Even so, you can be my light.
I will darken the day to night.
Wait, don’t let the world fill you with hate.
I have no defense.
My dear, my dear.
My love, my love.
You have nothing to fear.
There is nothing left.
Trust, never lose hope is a must.
Hope has been stolen away in the light.
It won’t always be this way
I am trapped in this darkness.
Soon there will be a better day
There will only be darker times
Look, a good ending will come as in your fairytale book
I see no happy ending in sight
My dear, my dear.
My love, my love.
There is no need for fear.
Only because of accepting the dark.
Do not invite the dark
It will make me stronger.
Continue to sing as a lark
I stopped long ago.
Hope, there will always be a way to cope
Hope left me when I was young
My dear, my dear.
My love, my love.
What is it you fear?
I fear nothing.
Do not try to show me lies
I show you wisdom in the dark.
Why do you think yourself wise
Dark has revealed what light was hiding.
Hush, you can’t keep hiding in the brush
I don’t need to hide, but you?
My dear, my dear.
You are not in the cover of darkness.
You are one I will never fear.
Then you can’t say you are wise.
You won’t listen as I say
I don’t need you now or ever.
You are becoming darker this way
I was always dark, you were blind
Why do you destroy all I can do is cry
You can do nothing anymore.
My dear, my dear.
My love, my love.
You are the dove,
Claiming wisdom and light,
You gave into me without any fight.
“My dear,” you call and think I fear.
But I am the crow,
Strong in the night,
Flying higher, Stronger, forever in flight.
While you give in to rest in the night.
You tried to be the light,
But I am the dark,
And I have broken all the world,
And with the world, I destroyed you,
And destroying you,
Destroyed me.
