In The Woods Somewhere


My head was warm
My skin was soaked
I called your name 'til the fever broke
When I awoke, the moon still hung
The night so black that the darkness hummed

I raised myself, my legs were weak
I prayed my mind be good to me
An awful noise filled the air
I heard a scream in the woods somewhere
A woman's voice, I quickly ran
Into the trees with empty hands

A fox it was, he shook afraid
I spoke no words, no sound he made
His bone exposed, his hind was lame
I raised a stone to end his pain
What caused the wound?
How large the teeth?
I sure knew eyes were watching me

The creature lunged, I turned and ran
To save a life I didn't have
Deer in the chase, here as I flew
Forgot all prayers of joining you
I clutched my life
And wished it kept my dearest love
I'm not done yet
How many years I know I'll bear?
I found something in the woods somewhere
