Treasure Island

The Silent Sword

(April 2,1997)


Feel the direction of the wind,
The breath of the Earth that guides me.
Carrying away an ending life,
The shattered soul that dies free.

Dancing in the clouded sky,
The heavenly world where we float.
Never will they read our lives,
The written script, the burning note.

Surfing the currents of day and night,
We see the world down below.
See it all on the eternal flight.
The combining energies fall like snow.

Ever we fall on the lap of hope.
Peace of the mind, peace of the soul.
Living on is to fight and cope,
Follow the heart cemented whole.

Remember me for the way I am,
A forgiving silence to be admired.
Embers remain where I began.
The buried soul beneath ash-fire.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
