Under dark waters the light glows
In the eyes of cats at night it shows
All pain and sorrow left behind
And through the darkness my love shines

A thousand miles we are apart
So tightly wrapped it thorns my heart
My song is heard in owls’ cries
And through the darkness my love shines

It lights the green fog on the hill
It burns in shooting stars as wishes are fulfilled
Glowing as bright as fireflies
Yes, through the darkness my love shines

In the flames of candles in your room
In the smallest sliver of a waning winter moon
Electric like a neon sign
Yes, through the darkness my love shines

Burning like pagan fires of long ago
Luminescent my heart shines for you –
So don’t let go

And in the darkest hour of night
Moments before sleep comes and dreams come into sight
Just know that you are on my mind
And through the darkness my love shines

Through the darkness, my love…
And through the darkness…
And through the darkness my love shines

I was born in Chicago on the 02-28-77 I spent my early childhood in San Francisco under the strict yet loving care of my parents. who where Rosicrucian priests.

At a early age i Began to draw using perspective and with lust i tought myself to draw and sculpt.

My parents would never allow action figures or toys that represented war so I began sculpting my own out of bee’s wax and many of the things i resented as a child became the very building blocks of my artistic growth.
