Come to me
Elusive angel of the night
Carrier of childhood sands
Envelop me
Leave me fade

Floating in the nothingness
Surrounded by them all
Screaming shadows
Greatest glories
Flowing and flashing
Lives lost

Vanished into the past
Not even memory
Random pictures
But one constant
Always you

You are shadow
And glory
Haunt me
Taunt me
Daybreak. The end
And you’re gone again

Childhood sands
Shadazar. Could you help this old man out, and point me to a reference on what childhood sands refers to, or indicate where I should be looking.

Sorry it's taken so long, Captain. It has been quite some time since I've thought about this poem, but I am relatively certain that the sands bit was simply a reference to the sandman, visiting children. I wish it meant something deeper, but there you are. The sandman is the 'angel' and so fourth... just another personification of sleep.
