Shadow Upon the Earth


A shadow fell upon the Earth
Throughout that day
All the light she wrought
Faded away
Into her veins
Sucked out from the ground
The Sun she made seeping away

A shadow fell upon the Earth
When her smile fled
When all she contained
And all she created
Disappeared along with her

A shadow fell upon the Earth
All who knew her wept
For the warmth that filled our souls
Was now nothing more than a mere memory
A mere shadow to fill our company
