Lullaby of the Lost

“We were born before the wind”
  Held by angels and given wings
  To fly this world ephemeral 
  Every breath a miracle

“And oh, I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain”
 Chased spectrums of the rainbows burst between
 Held my arms around the thunder storms of lovers
 Rode on river bends deep with loss and wonder 

 But still I’ve only ever found an aching that is you
 In alpine meadows drenched with light inside the morning hue
 And when the sloping sun sends golden kisses out to sea
 I “shoot the moon and miss completely”

 It seems I‘ve always drifted out or crashed and combed this life 
 A seeker gleaning meaning in the shadows left behind
 Where night is sleeping softly round the lonely stars above
“Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?”
