It is but a dream of yester-day, A feeling for which bares me nay, A moment of peace for which speaks to me, And sings its enchanting songs of what used to be.
It is but a voice of whom whispers in my ear, The lost tale of thee that of which I shall never share, The scene of thee that of which I shall never paint, For 'pon the whites of purity shall I dare not to taint.
It is but a daunting gift from an unnamed Someone, For which shall nothing appears 'fore thy mind when all is done. Hence, 'tis forsaken bounty shall be'st what is left to seize, -- Twin daggers for which reminds me of but twin seas.
Alas -- It is but a gnawing death that shall forever tread, The dark midnight trails, housing the demons I hath bred.
