New Dawn

Collaboration with Mystic Rose
When the night claims you like a wayward leaf of old 
and it takes you to the caves where anything turns gold 
you don't ask any questions and you don't dare breathe 
you just follow her, like a light weight tumbled weed 

Down the passages of dark, down the staircase of rune 
every step a little deeper than the crevices of moon 
you can almost taste the air, on your tonguing clepe 
you can down the stars of heaven in one single leap

Taking you by the waist it shall dance you through
the elixir of happiness when your feeling down n' blue 
you just thank the Lord for the magic of this gift 
all you need is skin n' eyes to cross her lowly rift 

When night claims you like a wayward leaf of old 
and takes you to her caves, all etched with gold 
don't ask her any questions just go ahead breathe 
no, don't ask her anything at all, just breathe, 

yes breathe...
Mystic Rose

  New Dawn
When dawn unfolds before you like a mystic rose
And awakens all your senses from a deep repose
Arise unshackled from capricious dreams
Step as you dare on stairs of woven sunbeams

Along the once black tunnels where you learned to breathe
Forget the darkest stars that taught you how to grieve
Float on the air like a magic, golden leaf
Grieve for the day because it is so brief

Now with bright garlands woven in your hair
Dance  lightly on  a leafy,  forest stair
Your floating gown as light as clouds and sky
Your happiness as fleeting as a sigh

When dawn unfolds before you like a mystic rose
And awakens your whole soul from deep repose
Dance in the day because it is so brief
And sigh at the stars that taught you how to grieve.

Thanks Teppo: This response seemed to come so naturally. Perhaps Mystic and I are on a similar wavelength.
