Echoes (You Were the Song)


You were the song my soul longed to sing

Like strains of music we wound together

The sky was midnight blue

With stardust and rose petals

Falling around us

Eternity all around in a silken haze

Nights were filled with the sweet fragrance

Of purple irises and white orchids

All ebony and moon glow

But now forgotten shadows

Frequent that room

And one voice echoes as it touches stone walls

In a dream I wake to find myself empty

Just as an extinguished candle

Leaves the night
