From those lost lands of long ago
In the land which dreams dwell in
where love and hate and life begin;
where swiftly the deep rivers flow
from those lost lands of long ago.
I wander through wild poppy fields
Underfoot the dark earth yields….
I see the flowering fruit trees start
Their blossoms gather round my heart…
I hear the sparrows sing with joy
And bees their busy wings employ.
In those lost lands I saw your face
And so I longed for your embrace.
Were you real,was I deceived?
From loving arms we all must leave.
Earth to earth and ash to ash
Glory,pride and boasting pass.
You had to leave,my dearest one.
Soon I too will be called on.
Nothing lasts but truth is real
Myth or logos,our ideals..
Earth to earth, we rest in clay
We must give all self away
Softly on this earth I roamed
then I found my love and home;
For until the very end
Love and kindnss may descend.
Soft as wings of butterflies
Tears well up and wet my eyes.
My heart has melted into yours
Thus we live and die like flowers
