So far away – 8/18/03

A man is gone and further from
the world that he left long ago
He hears the call but cannot get up
For he has fallen with a broken wing
And there he lies within plain view
of a life that’s now a dream
A love was taken and swallowed down
but remains still inside like a poison that clouds the mind
I met this man not long ago with eyes like the ocean
Deeper than the mystery beneath a mirror of waves
I saw myself and nothing more
and fell to the ground to weep
How lonely it is on a ship set sail for the golden horizon
He heard the call but did not speak
for the sea did not reply
He loved a world so far away and always out of reach
The life near by just withered and died
like the tree who loved the sun so much
it forgot about the rain
