I'm alone as it's advised to heal the world...to make it right.

Lions and Tigers and Bears

I'm alone as it's advised

to heal the world...to make it right.

I've cleaned my home a thousand times,

my books and movies reorganized.

The end of times feels nearer.

I can't stand being alone.

I spend my days facing the mirror...

waiting for a ring from the phone.

But, there's another in the mirror

who looks the same as I.

No remorse in his demeanor

and there's darkness in his eyes.

In my world outside the mirror

love and smiles are my affairs,

but behind the clear glass prison

only lions and tigers and bears.

As a child I studied hard

in my room by candlelight.

Many shadows walls would guard

and some even waved 'good-bye'.

Things indeed go 'BUMP' at night;

"Come and play," they often say.

And when mommy walked inside

they would hide under my bed.

I hear tapping from the tree branch.

It is right outside my window.

Or are those clammy- cold dead hands

that move beneath the moon's glow?

The night brings us many things.

Thunder comes with every storm.

With the storm a knock, knock, knock

from a stranger at my door.

The lights go out. I'll need a candle

before seeing who comes for me.

Is it a friend, a foe, or vandal?

No... just Death with God's decree.

There's another in the mirror

who once before was safe.

In his life once filled with vigor

Only lions and tigers and bears.
