Lost Hope Upon the Wind
The sweeping wind lingers,
Beneath a sky filled with stars
Fading away quietly
As the placid calm soon echoes
Soft murmur from fallen hearts
Aching with sorrow silently.
From the beginning, first to last
Each moment, precious and held dear.
Eternal sweetness left in the past
A pain burning so far, yet so near.
One last gaze to a path now gone
Dream fragments impossible to find.
Words and wishes forever undone
Simple smiles soon left behind.
A goodbye to vanishing stars
A single memory spinning away
No tears to stain fallen hearts
Only lost hope upon the wind…

For you, Arthur, the last for now…
