Strong Desires Hush Too Soon



Ebbing tides
go out from sea
Waning moons
go out from night
Strong desires hush too soon
and promises take flight

Sinking stones
fade in the sea
Falling leaves
fade in the night
Strong desires hush too soon
and promises take flight

Sailing ships
get lost at sea
Wanting souls
get lost at night
Strong desires hush too soon
and promises take flight
