Reaching Out Into The Darkness

I still hear the voice that echoes in my heart

I still recognize the
timber and the tone.

Hear the sound of her voice
deep inside

From her voice in my mind
that one time.

Only one time did we speak,
share ourselves.

Only one time did she
paint my heart with sound.

Said my name, 
and it brought me tears of joy.

Said my name,
can you understand the thrill?

Reaching out into the darkness,
'cross the world,

Sending echoes of her caring
to my ears.

Hear her voice and remember 
it each night.

Let me hear her whisper softly
one last time. 

Let me know she remembers
what we shared.
