Sapphire clouds on pink mountains Sky of lemon Deeper into the inversions of my mind Reality is this vivacious hum Singing the blues My prayer book of gold Contemplation.... Eyes watching the moon wane Waves, lush tides to soothe a soul Shall I ascend to the next level? I only stopped to pause and reflect. I remember sweet silken moments... The sweetness of succulent wine I passionately love you. I believed in you. It was so unexpected that you would leave. And then I stayed too long in the valley of sorrow Wondering what might've been..... It drove me mad and sad almost to the point of no return. I shall not carry this sorrow alone Venus shines through the pines Illustrated hope hangs on the cypress Serene swans like cryptic poetry. Death is not romantic Life soars above the planets White lilies sing amidst the fireflies I have heard the voice of peace Now the stairs before me beckon me To climb to the next level where the view And fragrant red roses will delight my weary soul You might even be there to dance with me one more time in the mystical mists of eternity.
