As I have always remembered you
And always will
Your soft gaze and tender feel…
Through my heart-you rise
And through my soul-you drift
Deep through this chasm gaping
You release me from your grip
You take away the stars
And conceal the paleness of the moon
You mask the daylight’s sunshine
As I give nothing of me to you
I repent these wrinkled thoughts
And think little of the past
And yet I can not forget the future
A moment’s breath for me to gasp
The foreverness of this time
Breathing the wind of my eternal chimes
The ancient timepiece of sighing tides
Deeply settles the yearning peace
To what end- I wonder
And at what price
Of whom are these thoughts thinking?
Where is this twisted path leading?
From what wells of gluttony will I be drinking?
And why does my heart feel like it’s sinking?
Beneath the shallow troubles of doubts conflicting?
Where will time take me
Along my curious and finite road-I often wonder
And when will the sweet lips of higher destiny kiss mine
Revealing to me a life
Ungodly-yet blissfully divine
