it's been so long since i've seen your face,
since that night i made my greatest mistake,
that night when the leaves fell around us
like our dreams, shriveled and still so beautiful,
gleaming tarnished gold in the dying light.
i've been travelling blindly since then
because the sun's set and it's dark now
as i search for the horizon and hope
that when i reach it the sun will rise again,
as it hasn't since i left you.
i've been imagining that you'll forgive me one day
when we both stand in the light of sunrise once again
but for now i'm dreaming of a tree
stained orange and crimson by the sun,
where the leaves are falling and i'm missing you.
