I stumbled through the great perhaps.

Hoping that, by chance

I'd catch a distant glance

Of a form of you that can't collapse

Even against the force of times elapse.

A form that hasn't felt the fire's dance

And can stay with me to see the Earth's expanse.

The you before all my mishaps.

But time's cruel sway

Has turned the clock

And stolen you away.

So I will walk this land in shock

And see no light of day

for you were my only hope
