Marauders of the Breeze

I'm astride a white steed that runs through the trees I am a leaf, a marauder of the breeze I ride against the rain, I was born with a vein of knowing Like the disappearing sun of yesterday, so has my past slipped away I'm called Shantain, born at the edge of morning Sight to the blind who cannot see tomorrow, or view the valleys of the past Where voices speak in lost syllables, in a language of forgetting Clouds take me by the hand, and wind takes him by the mane We are runaway dreamers, in the moment of some happy memory I hear the infinite past at the heels of each enchanted hoof I am Shantain. This is my steed. I was born with the seeds for growing I was born with the grain of knowing We are the messengers...together we will be witness to the world We prove that hearts of species, as wide as the universe Can beat as one....drawn together, like poetic and timeless music And that both hearts can feel the same remorse when day is done
