Forever I have wandered lo,
Thine arm doth find my withered heart
In darkest hours time runs slow
Stay with me lest the light depart.
Thou hast gone from land to land
Oft I wondered how it be
That you yourself could keep up with
The growing need for likes of thee.
Years before said sudden change
I saw thou as a thing renowned
And now the height lies breathless with
The mystery in the frozen ground.
For you are mine and I am yours
The traveler and the king so wise
And now I wonder, had I been
The same, reversed, in your dark eyes?
