    Evil lurks today
    One Devilish warrior
    He stands vigilant
    Ready to kill for Satan
    Offering souls as plunder

    A lovers treasure
    Brightly sparkling souls shine
    Calling each other
    Softly caressing torn hearts
    Combined soulmates forever

    BKF

    Wonderous beauty
    Has our mother Earths forests
    Deep colbalt oceans
    Calling out in painful hurt
    Wounded beyond our belief

    an angel appeared
    coming from heaven above
    sent to earth for me

    my life began on that day
    when my angel came to me
