Rise (Kyrielle)



‘Tween two thoughts in my mind lie you
A tranquil aura to pursue
A spring-deprived look in your eyes
Home, tomorrow the sun will rise

Charcoal tears make life incomplete
A dreamer’s smile is bittersweet
Despair is destined to demise
Home, tomorrow the sun will rise

Ink shan’t hold deterioration
Spring will be your one salvation
Tho’ hope, away, a thousand skies
Home, tomorrow the sun will rise
