Yet she does not know her the same
Her past lies of fading memories
Her future looks quite the same

The days of sunlight now look grim upon her brow
Her sorrow masked by make-up
That lies smeared upon her face
Her spirit is left vacant with only empty space

Once the edge of daylight
Encompassed her with faith

A time before she knew her
A smile had taken place

Her heart was warm and gentle
She had a delicate embrace

A woman with a future
Was standing in her space

Time has passed before her
She was beaten in the race

No one seemed to notice
The sadness in her face

The kindness in her heart has seemed to be erased
Her smile and precious memories
Left without a trace
