This Path


Time, lost to us like the wind

I once held you smile so close

Now it seems that I'm drifting behind

Dearest fragments I no longer hold


In the ineffable silence between us

Darkness is slipping into resounding pain

Even when I chose to embrace the coldness

Fond memories start to resurface again


Although you may forget my words

Someday when doubt fades, I will believe

Continue with this path and follow this road

Even without the light of your smile to guide me


Now, even without your warmth by my side

I have the strength to stand my ground

Able to wander alone, this path of life
