Your sins in my bed
Your youth's in my fist

You long for the life
I weep for your loss

Into the air of night we run
Fleeing always the burden of sun

And the end shan't come.

A wandering in new
The venture through night

It can't hurt forever
Turn back if I could

The pace is too fast
Will this heart but last

If I were in you
I'd die quickly too

And my childhood's gone

Sad. I can only guess this is written from personal experience, and as one who has seen the loss of children firsthand, I offer my empathy if that is so.

She walks in silence and waits in shadow. She is my lady and my angel.
