Do you remember the days of Sand, when we met?
How the stars above were filled with awe…
And the sun shone brightest upon YOU and ME,
All bestowed with the blessings of Ra.
For OURS was a union, never foreseen,
Not by my Master, not by your Queen;
A bond of all lifetimes,
It turned the kindest man green.
While the Bronze days that followed,
Never quite had the feel of tomorrow
Bore secrets and legends made of victories and sorrow…
Shared by the trace of a bloodline
So ancient to this present space and time;
But YOU and I can still taste the flesh upon which we dined…
It is gone but not lost on the time we have borrowed.
So confusing, this fear pent up full inside here,
And the pangs have gotten stronger
I know YOU are near…
To find YOU again in an Iron of times
Has long sent the mysteries of the dead up my spine
Just to lose YOU once more in the throes of my mind…
The journey thus has been so unkind, so untrue to this soul of mine.
I reach for you now
Because I feel you there once more
Unsure and afraid of what you’ve come back to reach for,
But most certain that I can’t set these fires anymore.
Your soul knows all that will be, or has been,
Has it truly been written in limestone and sand grain?
That your return will be a mockery of destiny’s reunion…
How many centuries have we buried in this sand?
Repeat the beat upon my chest for taking your shaking hand,
once again, we face each other for another final stand,
the sweetest of sauce,
can’t ease such a loss of such an elusive man.
