Adrift on a stormy sea, floating like debris
Life throbbed but weakly, in my form so weary
Hope I had none, for Id given up the fight
And learnt to bear, the dying of the light
Then came the night, and the cold cruel rain
Amidst which I heard, a sweet gentle strain
Ever so softly, it called to me
The hope that was dead, fluttered its wings
I closed my eyes, the song in my heart
Felt myself floating, high on the waves
Opening my eyes, I looked into my dream
You smiled at me, as I knew you would
I was on a shore, golden and green
The flowers that I love, were dancing with you
You sang on just for me, Oh how sweetly my love
I thought in my heart, this was worth all the pain
Yet the moment you touched me, the dream was shattered
Your face changed its hue, became dark like the night
Then you turned back in disgust, back to the rock
I tried to follow, but I had become as stone
With my eyes I beseeched, but you heard me not
Again I heard your song, but not for me
Nearby I saw, many more like me
Helpless and drained, caught in your web
You search I think, for that poet who wrote
The song that you sing, yet he never comes
To revenge his folly, you ensnare us fools
And leave us imprisoned, in despair eternal
Yet I have no regrets, nor bemoan my fate
For I hear you sing, and watch you from afar
No longer lonely, now your search is mine
I too now wait, sharing your pain
