Melancholy (Songs Of Joy And Loss)


The night brings me her memories

And the breeze sends me her music

Together with my heart

They weave songs of joy and loss

Of such beauty and pain

That even the stars begin weeping

Melancholy flows like gentle waves

Across the sea of the heavens

And the moon wraps herself

In the the tatters of a broken cloud

Hiding her sorrow from all
