The Vigil

The Vigil

 

I am the promise you have broken

I am the vow you have never spoken

I am the one true story you cannot revoke

And as you sing your silence to the silence that will follow

I am the unsung glory there

 

I am the voice at the hollow of every prayer

That fills you with love

And empties you of despair

I am unfailingly there

 

I am the future you have ruined

I am the past you have existed through

I am the part of you that is still

And always true

 

When you imagine nothing is left

To do and feel

The world crashing in apologies

Sackcloth and ash

I am the light at the center of the flameless fire

Extinguishing pain and desire

With a love that comes to take you home

Where I always am

 

Where I am still
