Innocence is leaving my eyes

Calling to mind since our love began

How things unexpectedly have become

Mine eyes sadly have seen life’s tragic path

Yet of my lover, I am on constant conscience

Fate’s promises are proved to my true

Yet I am still disunited with you

You are on a different horizon

I among the forest timbers

Quietly a dove coos

My mind lost without yours

since we have become parted

I search for solace till darkness consumes

but not darker than my soul lost…painfully crying
