Departure (Forest of Shadows)

Daylight left with a grand adieus And I felt its twilight kiss Dancing into my empty stare Clad in a spectrum of dying colors Peering through oblivion Where memories lay waste and wilde Like fragments of a lamentation Sleeping within a lie Daylight left with a grand adieus And I gazed into its bleak eyes As it wept the end of my days With radiance of bitter loss Entering my deep within Where thorns grow without restraint Piercing my blissful sleep Awakening a tragedy Daylight left with a grand adieus And I saw black draperies fall To the sound of a whispering nocturne Played gently with the echoing minors of my past Growing within my mind Like an endless crescendo of melancoly Feeding on my last gleams of hope As night had set forever Daylight left with a grand adieus And I found myself in a sea of death Floating helplessly towards the end Drenched in a withering illusion Pulsing through my veins The lasting torments of a funeral song That left me singing the opening theme The soundtrack of my fall Daylight left with a grand adieus And I asked for its forever hand Stretched out with a euphony of sirens As if knowing the hour was mine Granting eternal sleep With distant songs of a farewell dream I know there is another somewhere And I would die to meet its smile
