Child of eternity, lost to mankind,
Searching forever a freedom to find,
Lonely as shadow and wandering as flight,
A memory faded through many long nights.
Love passes quickly, fate takes its toll,
A blink of an eye and the loss of a soul.
Walking through centuries, passing through time,
Life slips through your fingers and ages in rime.
Whorls of remembrance like spirals of ice;
Living, just living, and living's hard price--
Watching humanity, moths withering fast,
As day follows day and is never the last.
So weary and burdened and travelling on
As love is forgotten and all else is gone:
Tears held within, but are never released,
'Til the end of the world, when there's, finally, peace.
