i came across your name by accident
without a face, i found your melodies
then i found your voice
full of melancholy with rhythms of hope
you spoke to me as if through a muse
and told me stories of a past
as if you walked through them with my eyes
and a feeling heart that bled my blood
for souls long gone that i've yet to meet
so i ask myself why this gift?
why this gift that i will never know?
in the afternoon light and the darkness of night
when your voice comes on in my dreams
