Farewell

I’ll be waiting
when your years have passed by
with the beautiful birdsong
When sorrow becomes tears of joy

All is forgiven when the light shines
in the choking darkness
I have been a part of the shadows
for many a lifetime

You will not understand
I still want the mornings to be of dew
and the flourishing sun
not the burdens I leave behind

I can reach and touch the skies of azure
which have alluded me for so long
With the rings of leaves upon the open arms
of the tree I lie under
to reminisce

I’ll be waiting
when the rainclouds fade
and the sunlight beckons
When sorrow becomes tears of joy

The End
