November Dream (Forest of Shadows)

Amidst a forest of shadows Swept in thorns and songs of farewell I felt an echo of a glorious time Gently whispering my name As if knowing of my demise As if guiding me away From the torments of my loss Towards that which i seek One final glimpse of her smile And so i followed and arrived At the shore of a silent lake Where i beheld a starlit silhouette Of somehow familiar features It was her, my love and life Staring into the night And awaiting my advent I called out her name And she unfolded her funeral face With eyes of radiant sorrow That pierced my blissful stare A moment of joy turned to dust As she spoke her final sigh And left me shattered and alone Amidst a forest of shadows Swept in thorns and songs of farewell
