Track Name: A Lullaby
A poignant scent, in fevered dreams
somewhat blue
weathered and blurred,
scrawled signs written on the water's surface
in the language of sea creatures,
incognizable and out of reach.
Now all a washed up riddle
laying rotten on the shoreline
an enigma without dignity
a question mark hidden behind each sentence
a lament for a long lost love,
at the banks of Styx.

And then:
Suddenly, yet subtle,
like a premonition of a possible reconciliation,
a single start shines through
oscillating in the vibrant foggy night sky,
orchestrating the wind in the weeping willows shushing hum,
one misty morning, with a yearning passion,
at the lake where our first infatuation was born,
and made way for this new days
black sunrise.
