The sound of wings, out of nowhere they appear

And into infinity they fly

I wonder if those who are sleeping in the ground

Are disturbed by the throbbing sound

Of a one way path to eternity

Enclosed in my room I speak to the quietness

Breaking the silence

Enclosed in my room I speak to the quietness

But no one replies

Eternal darkness, no light to see the unknown

I can only sleep

A single tear falls, a sad remembrance of the night

When she was told

Voices of the night echoed by the winds of time

Can you not hear them?
