Carry Me Away

Letting my soul be free,
letting my heart finally sing,
The only words I can remember today.
As the wind carries me, away.

Spinning slowly watching worlds go by,
seeing that sparkle return to your eyes,
the only face I remember today,
The one that answers my silent cries.

Watching seasons out of order,
Walking lines and crossing borders,
the only place i can remember today,
My map is two options, and the flip of quarter

Sunlight hits my shadowed face,
Illuminates my darkened fate,
The only emotion I remember today...
As the empty loneliness fills this place...

Letting my soul finally be free,
I try, but without you there is nothing to sing..
the only memory I have today...
But the wind carried you away.

I love it, what inspired you to write it ?

well, i had a dream about an old friend of mine. Someone very dear to me who is no longer a part of my life. I had a dream of all the things they would say to me and I to them, and when I woke up it was heartbreaking, and the wind was blowing very hard.
So this poem is just kind of a dramatization of how the emotions come and go with the wind, just as my friend was taken away from me.
