The Path of the Willow Trees
I staggered over the stones,
Stumbled over the craggy hollows;
Treading the ground beneath my feet.
With you I long to be,
Before my wavering heart stills.
Old ruins dark beneath the moon,
The muffled sounds of the night,
They pale and melt in the moonlight.
A soft strain of music,
As it stole up from your heart;
Your touch upon my cheek, a gentle breeze;
I step up lightly to kiss you,
Amid the shadows of the trees...
My eyes dreamy and dazed in the mist.
The earth where I'll lie, it's cold as stone,
That part of the earth in me;
The path of the willow trees,
Where you serenade me.
Where two souls illumine in the fog,
Blessed by the heavens and the earth;
Wreaths of silver shadows and damp,
As flow rivers pouring rain,
Releasing the storm inside me,
When you take me in your arms.
I hear you in my heart,
I hear you whispering.. my name.
