I searched for you inside the shadows
Of a summer day
Inside the park of no return
I could not find you
My eyes scanned and scanned
You were gone for good
Inside the essence of the forever plan
My heart picked up the pieces of our love
And threw them into the invisible space
Never more, never more cried the wind
As she carried them into a far away place
Now I can breathe
I spread the red and white table cloth upon the ground
And waited for your footsteps
In a backward walk
I saw you coming
Your smile fading deep inside the chambers of my heart
Buried there forever
Never more, never more, cried the tears
As they dropped into the ocean of life
Somewhere between the grave and I
But death cannot see you
Or touch you again
For love is the key
To eternal life.
