The Other Half

Into the darkness she started

Hole in her heart, broken hearted 

She wondered through desolation 

Tear-streaked eyes, no salvation 


Loneliness took hold of her soul

Nothing to fill it, never whole 

Day by day she endured

The days passing by, all in blurs 


Then came the merest shred of light

Piercing the shadows, their blight

He became the light of her day

Cleansing the shadows, gone, away


She awakens eyes bright and clear 

Full of happiness, no more fear 

Her days have become pure delight

For he is hers, a shining knight 


From across the country's wild land

He fills her heart, takes her hand 

Banishes the sorrow from her heart 

Completing her, the final part
