As life fades away from the ever longing gloom,
Of whispers past, dreams unfulfilled,
Moments of sadness, deepest regret,
Wishful wants, desires of the heart.
We play out every feeling, every emotion,
All our lives, so brief, we want to relive,
The pleasures, the pain, the joyous laughter,
Will we ever feel them again?
But there we stand prepared for our fate,
The longest queue, the last selfish wait,
The end of tears, the end of love,
The romance has gone forever.
What lies behind the final curtain?
We hope for light, yet sense its darkness,
At least we will find a gentle peace,
The ending of the madness.
