Flashes of radiant fire filled the sky
When you came passing by and nigh;
You came like a thief in the night
When you stole my heart at the silent sight.
Lost in love and wandering into wilderness
I found new ways to adore your finesse;
The key is the subtlety of the soul,
For it goes on forever and ever in whole.
Together we are; together we’ll be:
We once believed this with great glee;
I’m still lost in the story we once made
Missing and mislaid it sits there to fade.
I never wanted the sun to set because I knew what followed:
Nothing but the haunting presence of bitter, brooding black;
And there’s nothing inside but the pain I hide and hold back.
I never wanted the sun to set because this is what shadowed.
The dark death of the night swept over me,
And now you are far, long and gone;
Without you, how could I move on?
I’m set sail at sea, for I lost my key.
Now in memory I look to the starry sky pass by:
It once burned with fiery flashes of rosy red;
Though I can promise you this for the years ahead:
If you ever come by, fireworks will again fill the sky.
