Remember when we would lay in the sun
when summer breeze and dreams were fun
I can hear your laughter in my mind
and see your smile sketched in the sky
as if painted by a pilots trail
but now those things lie beyond the pale
I wish for calmer clearer futures
for the sun to never set
as I am just a comfort creature
that fills his life with one regret
I regret the days that passed too soon
that I spent mourning the moon
oh alas the days that turned to night
the days I surrendered and didn't fight
for love for peace for emptiness
for you, my heart that's truly blessed
and so sorrow flows with time
a maiden voyage a tempered line
ships they sail from host to coast
and me I fear I loved the most
if only captured by my words
I give them all to you who heard
now my time is surely done
at least I can say I felt the sun.
