Darkness (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
