Stillness called me here
Where bitter stars are few
From shadow to shadow
The night is yours
Senses sharpen
Faint galaxies approach
Attentive and glistening
Invisible wings beat overhead
Across this darkening loch
As Castle lights fall dim
And fell the walls of time
To give us this stage again.
Under spotlights
Of endless possibility
Or so we might have thought
Had we been older
But innocence is blind
Groping in vain for us now
But in the embrace of your night
Regret has no dominion

The sweetest comfort reigns
In the aftermath of a love
Woven not by chance
Or by choice alone
But for you and I to win or lose
For nowhere is it written
That such and such must be
And though moves may be forced
By history unfolding
The end remains unknown
Until it flies or falls

Yet even this parting and its taint
Inflicted no defeat on memory
No defeat on love
In the beginning
It was the little things
In the end
It was everything
Losing it is beyond me now
And here,
Where something of us plays on,
By the light of the indefinable
By the flowing depths
Of the unwitting wisdom
Of this heretical universe
I am thankful
