The lights are off
The wind blows the falling snow
Its matched by the sound of your breath
And the tremor of your hands
As Im seated by your bed
Attempting to find the right words to leave the room with
And I don't know what I believe
As you clutch your rosary beads
All these years, they're laid out in an evening
With the opening of your eyes
All these things rush through my mind
But the only thing I can say is that which Im certain
So sleep, if your tired eyes are closing
Don't be afraid anymore
Just sleep, if you're tired of fighting
Let it be peaceful tonight
Im sorry for all the times
I was selfish and unkind
All these years that Ive had with you and this is what Im left with
With the closing of your eyes
All these things clog up my mind
But the only thing we said was that which mattered most
So sleep, if your tired eyes are closing
Don't be afraid anymore
Just sleep, if you're tired of fighting
Let it be peaceful tonight
Sleep well
Goodnight, Goodbye
With the lights still off
I study your frail body
And what all these living days has left you with
With your breath across the room
And my hand upon the door
I realize then, that the hardest part will always be leaving
Sleep well
Goodnight, Goodbye.
