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?
