I would like naught but the chance to glimpse a glimmering shadow upon a sun streaked field, 

To find a place of darkening grace, that brings me to lucidity.
To hold and behold the essence of a thing that only kings had been able to wield.

To go beyond thought and embrace a thing that only Forever could comprehend,
To see within a light’s past and know that darkness had come before.

Skin of jade, and an angels smile,
 the touch of passion that you enfold,
You move like wind, and dance like fire, 
upon this landscape “my heart” you hold
Your thoughts are keeping, my deep secrets meaning, 
to put forth the light that you have shown. 
And in the eyes of umber gleaming, 
I see deep within its meaning, a solace no fable has told, 
so bring forth this, a hearing sacred, voice of resonance no string can fold.
And within this thought of heavens shadow, this ebony thing to me is gold

I have dreamt of you, in the darkest of night, and in the shadows I hear the calling

Darkness glimmers, a breath that shimmers to ring sound true a heart that’s falling
