My love sails with the setting of the sun
As the zephyr blows at my side
Bringing dark clouds over the lost warmth
Leaving my vision blurred with melancholy

My love flows further along with the perpetual waves
Of time lost, and time renewed
Singing a lullaby of sorrow and mourning
Gradually…gradually, leading me into the dark

My love beckons the hastening of dusk
Along with the silver lining of the horizon
Old lights guide my way
To an unexpected morrow of grey tidings

Waiting patiently, waiting for an eon
Quietly rising from my seat, I set sail.
