Sorrow Unfurls


Sorrow Unfurls

It is long

Since we parted

The descent

Towards darkness

Creeping shadows

Night winds blow

There is a sobbing twilight

Over sky and sea

Rains fall hard

In the deep

Dripping night

My candle

Is dying away

Your memory lingers

Red leaves

Are floating all around

And my sorrow unfurls

Like a sail

Before the wind
