In Shadowed Mists

In shadowed mists I search for you,

In spirit, a lonely shade…

Wandering in and out of trees

That line the chilly glade.

A sigh escapes my ghostly lips,

An echo from darkened trees.

Once a living breathing girl,

Now a restless soul who flees.

Fleeing humanity’s bonds at night

Within my wafting dreams;

I search for you o’er shaded land,

Filling heaven with my pleas.

To hold your body next to mine,

Feel your breath upon my skin;

A saddened prayer unheard by man…

Unanswered yet by Him.

And so I float, weary unrest,

My echoes from mountains fall;

Waning with morning’s light, my love,

Unbeckoned by your call.

Yet I shall come again, my sweet,

As sun descends the sky;

And lonely hills of Mother Earth

Await my desperate cry.

I’ll search the heavens down, my love,

Raise the fires of Hell;

If this is now required of me

For the rapture of your spell.

So save some of your love for me

'Til there should come a time,

When we can touch, embrace, make love,

As one…two souls entwined
