I hear it rising between us

Like a sea, with its whispers

It rushes and darkens the sand

With the sad, empty echoing

Of something lost

The silent shiver of the trees

Speaks in soft voices to the night

Hearts that were undisturbed

Are falling into the mystery

We lived a silent love

But now, draped in starlit shrouds

Like a veil upon the moon

I watch it fade in the night

Feel it fall away again

In silence, displaced

It yet remains
