Eagle and Dove - Myths, Magic and Medicine

moonlightPart 3: Myths, Magic and Medicine
 
Chapter 1: Manana's Song
 
As I sit and watch the ashes glow
Awaiting the hour my mind will sleep
My thoughts turn to a brighter day
Gone are the memories of yesterday
Lost in this haze of self sorrow
I prey to God my life will change
I prey for a new tomorrow.
