O burning heart!
I speak to thee
I call your highly spoken name
I ask you to return to life
(Without you life is not the same)
O wounded soul!
I beg of you
I hope I do not cry in vain
I wish to see you mended now
For I cannot endure this pain
O shattered mind!
My closest friend
These thoughts no longer heal thy ails
I wish that I could let you rest
So your faculties may not fail
O battered corpse!
O helpless life!
Alas, this world was cruel to thee
How I would yearn to salvage you
And grant thee immortality
But time has passed,
And now stands still
Failing to mend thy hurt and pain
And you, my heart, shall move no more
For time has failed us once again
The mind’s decay
Will follow still,
The body’s rotted corpse in death
Thine eyes will close eternally
And you shall breathe one final breath
I call your names
O heart! O mind!
O soul deserving naught but best!
Alas, you all are sleeping sound
I leave you now, to rest
