Fade To Black
by Michael Romani

We shared our goodbyes at hallowed grave
To the one that we could not save
Then sat ourselves in shadowed room
Almost welcoming our mournful gloom

There was a time shared by we few
That seemed the miracle of me and you
Now all that there is, is the emptiness
As death took you and with you, my happiness

There is no more glory nor dream
Just the waking up to my silent scream
The Autumn leaves fall to bury your plot
Holding in the pain of losing my comfort sought

If my eyes could cry even one more tear
I am certain that it would be buried here
To keep you close in my constant company
With a fade to black, it is the end for me
