Sweet Sanity

Written By Sylvia

Sweet sanity, why did you desert me tonight
leaving behind dark days, void of light.
Madness is waiting just a few steps away,
I'm trying so very hard to keep it at bay.

Sweet sanity, where have you gone?
You left me searching from dusk to dawn
for a path illuminated so bright,
to banish those dark days, void of light

Sweet sanity, my every moment filled with doubt,
this can't be what life is all about.
Desperately trying to fill dark days, void of light with hope
just so that I can cope.

Sweet sanity, I beg you, please come back,
guide my life to get it back on track,
to stop thoughts I have come to dread.
God, please don't let me be dead!

Written by Sylvia

Laying side by side, holding onto the goodbyes,
is this our last day together, won't you stay?
The longing for another fills your eyes,
memories of her will not go away.

We pretend the memories are not there,
but we know they are, they will never leave.
My heart is filled with such despair,
please make them go and stay with me.
