One day, they carried him across the sea
So that my grief would last an age.
My tears, day and night, I knew he heard
For two spirits were never so twinned as we
But no reply did come across the waves
Nor sigh nor sign to ease my fevered thoughts
For I near died upon that pale beach
To think that all was lost to me.
A glimpse, a shade, in the glimmering dark
In the brief chill of a passing vision
I saw your face through the mists anon
The ocean depths which filled your eyes
That spoke of pain and separation
Those white and parted lips that plead
With whispers, calling for their mate
Oh how my spirit leapt in horror!
For no sooner did that vision show
Then did the darkness close around it
Swallowed up in haze to leave me pining
For some spark to kindle in an empty soul
To think that they were not so cruel to take you
From that redemption known alone to us
Found in that sweet sanctuary called the heart
That you had rendered homage to…
