Imprisoned by a cruel disease
Robbed of precious memories
Walking
Walking
Endlessly
Going nowhere repeatedly.

Suddenly silenced, deprived of words
Voices hushed no longer heard
Staring
Staring
A haunting peer
Saying nothing – loud and clear.

Eyes that search for help in vain
Still filled with long forgotten pain
Searching
Searching
In despair
Seeing nothing everywhere.

Hands that dried their children’s tears
Now strangers to their needs and fears
Holding
Holding
Family ties
Now forgotten, vaporized.

Hour by hour, day by day
Imprisoned souls will slip away
Drifting
Drifting
Souls in flight
Out of darkness, through the light.

May heaven’s hand
Restore thee, Silent Knight.
