Sometimes you see a light at the end of the tunnel…
Love is just a chemical, no matter the origin. We give it meaning by choice.
I know you. That symbol on your hand marks you a dead man
She was never away that her father could even have nightmares, perhaps it was silly of her to think. He was human after all, everyone can have nightmares, Eleanor knows that better than anyone. A soothing song came to mind (one that Grace had sung to her when she was a child) that may ease her father’s weariness, may be just this once she’ll let her voice be heard:
“When I am down, and oh my soul so weary
When troubles come and my heart burdens me
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to stand on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up, to more than I can be.”
For once, Eleanor felt sorry for the man. It was bad enough to hear the Little Sisters screaming from their haunting nightmares (whenever they got the chance to sleep). A sigh fell through her lips as she took a breath to sing a lullaby that was calming:
“Far off in the distance, a fire comes to life
A flicker of a flame breaks through the dark
Burning soft and bright, dancing with the light
Awakening the Heavens and the Earth
Far across the ocean, a flame is rising high
Breaking through the shadows and the dark
Shining in the light, rising with the night
Her to wake the Heavens and the Earth”
Author’s Note: I imagined this to be one muse singing to another when they have woken up from a nightmare. My muse sings their own childhood lullaby.
But it can be anything you want really :) Just remember to have fun!
