The Desire

The night is threatening and cold
I am walking down the graveyard of my past
And I am trying to read
A vague messages of future
Childhood is standing, smiling,
And holding my heart in its hands
I want to join it
But it fades away

I am walking slowly, memories are vanishing
And I see an adult world
Grinning triumphantly
It is jubilating because of my defeat

Childhood is losing its glow
It is waving, it is disappearing
And it is taking away
Innocence, dreams, joy

I want childhood
To stay here forever
But the darkness in front of me
Is singing some strange melody

I hear old, wise souls
That are whispering to me encouragingly
Not to give up and to begin
A journey again
