Heart of the Dark Sea
(c) 2005 Kristina Stykos/BMI/Horse Thief Publishing

When the days are shining, I will know you
Touch my eyes to your horizon, walk your shore

You are my light, gentle light, holy light
You pierce my soul; with your strength, I am whole

Turning this night in my hands, I do seek thee
Torn like a page from the heart of the dark sea

Where your hearth is swept clean, I will know you
When your words all have been spoken, I’ll reply

You are in flight, ragged bird, o’er the dark sea
Look for the light, lonely man, you are now free

Cradle the flame of this parting, your passage
Take now this gift of my love from this message
