Lamentation

-

To the place draped in darkness

A soft echo is tumbling away

Reaching on into the taut silence

The grieving stars are starting to fade

-

Those hazy dreams, still linger near

So don't forget, not when we part

This invisible stain from fallen tears

Irreplaceable, pale memories in my heart

-

Time, now lost to painful remembrance

With the monotonous days passing on

Joyous wishes that drift, evanescence

A sweet smile swept away and gone

-

Echoing into the forlorn darkness

A sorrowful melody dangling in the wind

Stars once bright, fading with grievance

For a past, I just can't leave behind

-

An unfulfilled destiny
