Stranger Times

I met him, and together we walked along the wayside. Hands untied.
                       Together we breathed in the moonlight. Exhaling suicide.
                       Together we sat beside a sunrise and raised our glass' to the tide.
                     
  and he spoke so softly 

"In time we have forgotten, the safe place we hid our Pride. We left it with Truth in our race to beat mankind. We have become so consumed our future, that we forget to ask our past, how to live with the present and now miss the moments that will pass.  

Some night, soon my child, in your dreams you will find a star, to the left side of your heart. In the morning when you wake up you will find the way out of the dark ."

And then i left him, the stranger i sat beside.
As i walked away i wrapped my arms tightly round my side.
