I hold my heart tight

I hold my heart tight
Fearing the worst
My soul bursting
Fear and fright
Of that black night
Where is my mind
My soul devastated

Where in this dark night
Is there a spark of light
Of escape out of
A mind of dark thoughts
Would it be
A moment of connection
With you tonight

A light reflection
On the state
Of the day
Better remember
How wonderful
It all was
Once upon a time

These beautiful and innocent
Young souls not yet hurt
By the bitter and twisted
Vision of our leaders
Remind us to fight
To save our planet
For all living creatures
Bound together in a tight circle
