As time does pass she drowns in shadows,
I wish to help, yet wade in waters shallow.
The chains that confine covered in rust,
A love so unrivalled opposed to lust.
The day will come when she witnesses light,
And I will be there to emphasize the bright.
So here I wait and pray, through thick and thin,
For the day us lovers do meet again.
Steady heart which beats so slow,
How I beg, please don't plateau.
Yet, as time does pass, she drowns in shadows.
