If you want to know my heart, look to the stars, for there I have hidden all the deepest secrets of my soul.
Do you ever wonder
What lies beyond
The veil mortal eyes can’t see?
Life after death?
Darkness, or depth?
A void, or vast eternities
I close my eyes and drift away;
And in my mind I see her:
The girl that sits upon the shore;
In my heart I need her.
I met her once and fell in love;
That girl, she stole my heart.
And now she calls, “Come back to me.
Why did you depart?”
And so I go and meet her there;
In heaven, so it seems;
The girl who’s name is California:
The woman of my dreams.
A tear for the love that will never bloom;
An ocean for the years that I’ll still miss you...
The grip gets tighter as the warrior's strength fades.
The giant has finally won.
All that is good now passes away.
Even the light of the sun.
With one final breath the warrior asks why?
Why must the darkness prevail?
When all of his life has been spent in this fight,
Why has there been no avail?
To Darkness I say, "You cruel, wicked beast;
you taker of goodness and light.
What have we done to meet such an end?
What except that which is right?"
To Darkness I say, "You shall not survive;
there will come an end to your days.
There will come a time when nothing but light
shines with its life-giving rays."
To Darkness I say, "The good will prevail,
you can't stop the coming of dawn.
Try as you might to keep it at bay,
The goodness of man will go on."
Her prolonged eye contact said more than she ever did.
Volumes could have been written about that look in her eyes.
A lone and weary sailor
A long-forgotten shore
A ship without a rudder
A wind that blows no more.
Drifting had it's day,
But now has come the night,
And drifting without purpose
Will never bring the light.
Restless dreams awake me in the night;
Pounding in my heart.
Another day is gone,
Another love is lost.
Another restless dream...
