Inequality! By L. Don Oliver

The Lantern's Glow By. L. Donald Oliver

Comes a light through the forest, Preying nocturnal creatures there; The eerie shadows are dancing, But she doesn't seem to care;

In the city of the vaulted, Where specter and goblin roam; A place that one someday, She will call her home;

The glow from her lantern, Upon her journey each night; Through the maze of the departed, Extinguishes her darkened fright;

Many dreams have come, Many dreams have gone; And through all the years, He was her only one;

She treasures all the moments, Together they held fast; Alas, life is so fleeting, Pleasured moments never last;

Silent words are spoken, Unto her cherished one; Soon she will join him, When her task is done;

The snow gathers around her, But deep in her heart she knows; Nothing seems to fray her, As the cold wind blows;

The winds begin to dwindle, The snow turns to frozen rain; The only truth that sustains her, That she will be with him again;
