In the languishing years
I am wistfulness
and I am melancholy
Another night approaches
on swift silent wing
I am just drifting
on the cresting sea
Hovering on a whisper
in lengthening shadows
I reach for you
but touch loneliness
and in the darkness
there is nothing
but the silence
of a falling tear
