No Answers exist the day we’re born

No paths are clear in desert storms

No signs or sigils show the way

No beacon to warn of rocky bays

No guide we have to show the path

No surety ‘gainst the aftermath

No radar illums the black of night

No compass that draws toward Northern lights

No light that cracks through cloudy skies

Or trails to track our tragic lives

Yet on this path I tread today

With no guarantees to light my way

I choose to live, to take the chance

That what we’ve found is true romance

A passion that burns like stars so bright

And leads our souls to soul’s delight

I can’t let go though slim the hope

My God, I curse this fated slope

For where it leads we cannot say

But chance I’ll take, I’ll chance the day

That when I leave it all behind

The risk is worth rewards we’ll find

For none have touched my heart so dear

Your sweet soul wrapped in sorrow and tears

You see, I know what pain is too

I grapple and fight with grief and gloom

And still we cling against all odds

My silent prayer to man and gods

If folly it is to grasp at hope

Still grasp I will, cling to this rope

To live my life with you fulfills

Shakespearean dreams and fairy tales

This song I write, 1-N, for you

Believe some day and risk it too

For shed we sorrow but for one day

That day would last ‘til eternity.
