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…
