Far beyond the rising mist,
Dance the lips they once kissed,
To tunes my heart never heard,
From the beats stronger than any word.
Hidden deep in the briers,
Over the fence of barbed wire,
Clap the hands that once caressed,
Such a melody that my feet never were blessed.
In the whisper of the summer wind,
Stands the sound my fingers will not touch again,
Fly and float with each breath,
But only I will fall to my death.
Far beyond the realm of dreams,
Her eyes glisten and gleam.
Only darkness surrounds my vision,
Never to see them again a scarce decision.
Time and distance form an impassable chasm,
That heart and mind cannot fathom.
Thoughts of yesteryear vanish in the breeze,
Now only glimpses of faint memories.
