Loneliness (The Music of Abandoned Dreams)


I am a petal blown off course

Too light to settle

Loneliness is unfurled

In the vagrant drifts

And whispers of gentle breezes

They ebb and flow

And I am swept away

Our memories intertwined

As ivy to a stone wall

Yet are forever out of reach

Like the fragrance of flowers

This is the music of my abandoned dreams

Found only in memories

And under moonlit leaves

I feel you, just a whisper away

Tiny ripples touch my soul

As a moth, lonely too

Circles a flame
