But You Believed…

 The days grew dark,
 The skies more gray,
 Some gave up hope,
 Some moved away,

 And others, still,
 Began to doubt
 What anything
 Was all about --

 The nights turned cold,
 Except for when
 The angry fires
 Raged again,

 And many fled --
 The proud, the brave --
 Who thought,
 "There's nothing left to save" --

  But you believed,
  You told me so:
  You said that
  Good new seeds still grow

  You said that love
  Was still alive;
  Yes you believed,
  Now so do I.

 I felt the earth
 Began to cry,
 I asked, but no one
 Answered why

 I saw the changers
 All the same;
 With each at fault,
 No one's to blame --

  But you believed,
  You told me so:
  You said that
  Good new seeds still grow

  You said that love
  Was still alive;
  Yes you believed,
  Now so do I.

  You said love's hope
  Will never die:
  Yes you believed,
  Now so do I.
