The One by Ashwin

Down through the shadows of my heart,
All my thoughts and emotions flow,
I see no end,
I feel no tomorrow

Then an end appears through the fog,
A window of hope,
A blessed ray of light,
I can sense it ahead; there is hope in sight

Then a cloud of smoke materialize,
In a deep shade of red,
It was only a tease,
Just messing with my head

I stand, alone for what seems like forever,
But I feel a warmth creep up beside me,
I look to my left and there she is,
Smiling, her face glowing through the mist

She is not truly gone,
For she will remain inside me,
Be the light to guide me,
Forever in my heart.
