Let love melt into memory and pain into songs

Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.

My songs are lost in their depths

My heart, the bird of the wilderness, has found its sky in your eyes.
They are the cradle of the morning, they are the kingdom of the stars.
My songs are lost in their depths.
Let me but soar in that sky, in its lonely immensity.
Let me but cleave its clouds and spread wings in its sunshine.

I see the sun is setting another day gone by


I have no friends
that I go to see;
I have no friends
that come to see me.

Pen and paper
nothing to say;
Hello World,
this is my day.

I become ill
watch my family gather
but just want company...
and watch them scatter.

Lots to talk about
nothing to say;
Hello World,
this is my day.

What I am grasping for
is out of my touch;
why should existing
have to hurt this much.

My ex is quite happy
for he's destroyed me;
brought me here and left me
in "Dreaded Tn".

No one understands... 
Myself?  No, not even I
for "Tn" is the retirement place
where people come to die.

This is not my home of choice
not my idea to be here;
to leave would be a dream come true
on this my mind is clear.

I see the sun is setting
another day gone by;
Bye for now, my World,
for I must go and cry.
