Seconds drift like years
Knitting more fears
A shadow of mine escaped the crowd
Broke in tears a proud cloud
Uncaring for a pride falling to a creep
Darkness keeps secrets in the deep
Breathless turned an eye
Towards a marvelous sky
Was it sky’s garment over-glittering?
Or my crystals were behind that much twinkling?
Couldn’t I realize which was true?
As I couldn’t stop tears for a proper view
And how could I when you sleep cold!
You’ve promised with me to grow old
Why you’ve gone this fast?
What a spell to cast!
When I was around four, in love with a star I fell
Used to dream of it as well;
“Beyond that twinkling star
The Lord has hidden a jar
In which he collects spirits
Not any; just those of royal merits”
Wish that jar’s there for real
Glimpses of your wandering spirit, all night I’d steal
Weird’s life and how time rules every game!
Seems like yesterday when you spelled first my name
Today that you’ve become for whom I yearn
And tonight you’re ashes and I’m your urn…
