"The only true love I ever knew
Was behind those downcast eyes
The only comfort I ever felt
Was during those long hours of loneliness
When I felt for you
I do believe
Only innocence can save the world..." -Ocean Soul

On the morning of the light's awakening
Golden rain kisses the earth with endless longing
As great fires burn beyond the edge of the calm
Where lullabies and requiems flow as one

Dryad choirs sing of an age forever ago
Long before the beast touched the earth
Solitude no longer the voice of the woods
But the anguished cry of a fading wilderness...

The author's comments:
The second "part" to a group of songs I'm writing, following "The Calm Before the Storm". This was inspired by a heavy spring rainstorm, and the cool morning that followed in its wake.
