Farewell to the Lord of Neverwhen

The Queen of Neverwhen laments the loss of Lord Brightshade and learns to go on without him.

The Loss

Bitter dregs of poisoned wine bring anguish to her soul
Slicing through her shattered heart, the razor takes its toll
Broken dreams and silent screams rise up like ghostly plumes
Neverwhen's Queen falls to her knees, amid the empty rooms
Lord Brightshade is gone; he will not return - he lost his final fight
His Lady mourns; her tears adorn
His halls of eternal night.

Life Goes On

Life goes on for Silverhoof; she really has no choice
Many there are who depend on her and listen to her voice
New dreams unfold and the children grow with only her to guide
Mistakes are made in those lonely halls and many tears are cried
Lord Brightshade is gone; yet he remains in the hearts of those he loved
His Lady prays; she knows one day
She will see him up above.

I look in prayer,
Tears in eyes.
No one hears,
My pained cries.
I see just One,
Bend on my knees.
He bends down,
Whispers stand up please.

I look up,
I see those eyes.
Holding back,
Truth in cries.
I just know,
It my own way.
Prayer of Life,
Nothing to say.

For I have seen it,
Heard it all.
Now their tears,
In reverence fall.
As they watch,
One come alive.
In beauty and reverence,
Will to survive.

For there is no other,
Never will be.
Its the dream together,
With family.
As the Unity begins,
Darkness runs.
Showing the truth,
Thousand Suns.

Breaking shackle,
Voice of Praise.
Dream of Life,
In sweet embrace.
Whispering together,
Hold my hand.
We transform ALL,
From a distant land.
