Eternal Sadness

Last night, when the house was silent, and sleep hung in the air,
I heard a ghostly sighing, of nights no longer here.
I heard your laugh. I saw your eyes. And the smile I love so much.
The images would drift and rise. I could almost feel your touch.

And did you walk
Down city streets
And did your heart
Not miss a beat
When they laughed
At your words
Couldn't you see
They were all absurd

They said you worked
Like 'n artisan
They didn't know
Didn't understand
They couldn't see
The beauty there
They couldn't start
To treat you fair

And so you died
So few grieved
They didn't know
What you achieved
How your heart
So proud and strong
Couldn't stay
Quiet for long

So now we hear
From beyond the grave
This you gave
When no-one cared
A true great man
Will remember
We that can.
