Hear My Silent Prayer

Hear my silent prayer
Read my bloodshot eyes
Feel the tremor in my soul
As I lay me down tonight

Hold my shaking hands
Slow my shattered breath
Support my bleeding heart
Inside my battered chest

Hold my thoughts together
Wrap arms around me tight
Sing to me of peace
Softly in the night

Give me back my mind
Blow the ash away
So I can meet the sun
The newly risen flame
