For a little while, in terms of time  

You and I- we walked together

Over the setting sunsets like carpets

That helped to keep our hearts protected

But now you walk on the stars

Far beyond my reach of perception

Sometimes I fear watery mirror reflections

It gets too blurry to understand

Here in the living echoes of your silence

Waiting for my turn of fortune

Or the inevitable knock on my door

I don’t know where I’m going anymore

Or what I’ll find when I get there

You brought me out of myself… I miss you dearly
