You're My Effigy

You're my effigy,
Shade and shelter
My true epiphany
In you my weary soul may rest.

My sighs and tears will wither
In your warm and gentle cloak of endless dark.

I gave my love the sweetest child
A cherry with no stone
I sang an ancient lullaby
Sleeping children cry no more

You're my effigy
Guilt and pleasure
Entwined obsessively
In your embrace I need to be

My leaden heart grows wings
To take my mind beyond the lines of finity.
