If by fortune We’ve traveled down that long road With those whom we’ve dearly loved, Old friends that were always there Only to precede us slowly one by one Into that eternal starless night, We mourn in silence the loss. But when a soul-mate passes on, We feel as if falling into a black hole Without end a loneliness haunts our days To leave only relic images in our hearts And blessed when they return to us in dreams.
