One Last Desire

I have one last desire
Let me die
In the evening silence
By the sea

Let my sleep be a wing
And the lime tree be near
Let my skies lay blue
Over water

Let nobody mourn me
Besides autumn
Through the song of her leaves

Let the springs run down
While the moon will slide
Through the eyes
Of pine trees

Let the sea moan with passion
In my loneliness
While I'm silently turning
To dust
