And you walked on roads coated in dew On winter dawns so silent That you felt the frost on your hands speak to you A stillness which you never wanted to let go of.
For it is bleak at that hour of the morning And somewhere in the distance, akin to music You hear the laughter flooding in your ears The laughter of a young mother and her baby, born in midwinter.
You see the sun rise from beyond the hills over yonder It's easy to sin in darkness, until you face up to the light Your tired legs drag you towards paths that have not yet been graced by foorsteps And you follow your own shadow because there is no human in sight.
You knew love once upon a time Many moons ago, your young heart still dared to trust Your laughter came easily, and tears were rare But friends become strangers, and the brightest metal turns to dust.
You shut out the bitterness, and cling on to hope But the memories come calling, thick and fast There are only finite oceans to cross, before you start to sink You can live in the present, but you can't forget the past.
litlover63Absolutely astounding! I hope you know how perfect this is. Please try to have this published so everyone can enjoy it.
