the parting song

from by Lux Interna

lyrics

Oh let me go, let me dream for a while

Let me rest in the angels of your smile
Oh let me go let me wander in thought
Let me rest in the grace I have sought

So hold me, statue-bare and full of grace
The ways wind, the birds call
And long-autumn grins
And on my brow
And in my heart
The night is early
And from the woods
And thinning gardens
Lies, softly whispering

A brazen face, a lean belly
A familiar to all…

Oh let me go, let me dream for a while
Let rest in the angels of your smile
Oh let me go let me wander in thought
Let me rest in the grace I have sought
Oh let me go let me drown in my dreams
Is this world as sad as it seems?
Oh let me go let me drown in my dreams
Is this life as sad as it seems?

I’ve walked in this sunlight
I’ve traveled long-night
I’ve waited for god to reveal
I’ve walked in this sunlight
I’ve traveled long-night
I’ve felt all that god does conceal
And now I must go to the darkness below
For the Pale Hand beckons to me…

Oh let me drown in my dreams…
Is this world as sad as it seems?
