My Lover Does Await
I wait for you to see me through the night,
for nightmares come and capture me in dread,
I seek from you my solace and your light,
to guide my dreams to paradise instead.
Oh Angel can you wrap me in your wings,
to cradle me in blissfulness to sleep,
and quell my screams so only I will sing,
I hope tonight my eyes can keep from weep.
Sweet Angel pray with me I'm in the dark,
this place I'm lost and wishing I was blind,
my love has died I'm feeling pretty stark
in madness from the visions in my mind.
Oh Spirit be my guide to Heaven's gate,
and sate my heart my lover does await.
