One Fatal Footstep

On this untraveled road


I walk in dreams

My turbulent mind

Longs for this night to pass

Constant burns the flame of love

Between flesh and bone

Magnificent days

Magnify my pain

It is a blind path

A labyrinth

A lovely blossom trail

Dreams lead me forward

And I am naked in the rain

My soul bathes

In the blue mirror

Of your eyes

Oh how I fell

And oh, how far it seems

For the earth to reach to the sky

On these shores

Where dark waves beat

Only the wind is sighing by

I can hear a leaf

Falling to the ground

One fatal footstep

One small candle

One tragic minute

Then only ashes

Scattering in the wind

A heartbeat short of eternity

Only in my dreams

 Can I follow you

And only my love
