All I Ever Lost

All I Ever Lost

In silent passage

Over rivers of night

Somewhere between sunset and shadow

I hear my heartbeat in the rain

There is a whispering at the door

And eternity falls in a single drop

The crash of dreams

The tide of longing

Intense blue skies

Just a touch too far

Stones and brooks

Wind caressed

Like a beautiful thirst

You awaken my moods

Yet deceived by the light

When no dreams come

I am left

With the stillness of reflection

And I see

You are not all I ever lost
