But, this time

(Guitar INTRO)
(NO DRUMS THROUGHOUT)

The life she’d served by living in the moment
Sending a message, but never with a receiver
“Guess what?”, she asked, on the kneeler behind the curtains
She smiled and she whispered

Her name was scratched, first in blue, then in black
And, then she said to us what was unexpected
We heard the pin fall, it scared the silence off
Words just wouldn’t come out

Leaning on our shoulders, she knew we’d be there
There’s never no question, without the answers to them
Leaning on our shoulders, she knew we’d be there
She knew we’ll not defer, and leave her to suffer

(Guitar SOLO)

“Sin without deceivers, a God with no believers”
The poison through the stream
They say could help her smile
Sailing by the winds of silence, she smiles

Leaning on our shoulders, she knew we’d be there
There’s never no question, without the answers to them
Robbing her of her faith, traces of hope she saw, but
She knew we’ll not defer, and leave her to suffer
Her silver hair, her rosy cheeks, her sparkling eyes
Came to life with the spring
“Guess what?”, she asked, but this time we listened
“I’m moving again”, she said, but this time
It was far away

I have not read you in so many Moons and I come now, to sit amongst your words and find beauty. I am not knowing who this is about,but I am finding reading such very moving.

I'm sorry I just reread your comment, I'm guessing Senna was someone close?
