My Compass

Updated on September 30, 2012

You carried me on an ocean

The sea of hopes and dreams

My saviour, my kind wind

Compass of what life means


You eyes have been the sunshine

That helped me plot the course

To calm safe shores upon which

It was you that I adored


Now lost without my compass

In freezing waters all alone

Knowing that I'll soon sink

With a heart now cold as stone


Never finding solace

In the depths of the unknown

Ruling my new Kingdom

Void of love

From despairs throne
