~ Poetry by me ~


He came to me one evening       External link to original song
Tune & original lyrics: "Lady in Black", Uriah Heep

He came to me one evening, one lonely Wednesday evening,
His blue cloak blowing in the Midwinter wind.
I know now how he found me, for in darkness I was walking
And destruction lay around me from a fight I could not win.

Chorus: Aah ha haa hahahaa hahaha, Aah hahahaa hahaha.

He asked me name my foe then, I said the need within some men
To be like nithling wolves without thoughts of Gods or kin.
I begged him give me victory to vanquish all my enemies,
So eager was my passion to devour this waste of life.   - Chorus

"Your strength lies in your soul", he said, "Your victory comes from within,
Use wisdom as your weapon and enjoy the fight itself."
And he, the Father of all men, did counsel me so wisely then,
I feared to walk alone again and asked if he would stay.   - Chorus

"Oh High One, lead me on", I cried, "or let me wander at your side!"
"Have faith and trust yourself", he said and filled my heart with pride.
"In life there is no guarentee, the bravest ones may fall and die,
But when you struggle, be assured I wont be far away."   - Chorus

Thus having spoke he turned away, and though I found no words to say
I watched him go until I saw his blue cloak disappear.
My labor is no easier, but now I know Im not alone
I find new heart each time I think upon that windy day.   - Chorus

And if one day he comes to you, drink deeply from his words so wise,
Take courage from him as your prize and say hello for me.   - Chorus
