I have a story to tell but it will not be my mouth that will utter the words.
If my name never makes it
Into the books of legends,
If my works are never too strong
To hold on to the timelines of history,
If the hands of time
No longer catch me when I fall
And for love’s sake
I’m banished to the land of the dead.
Paint a picture in my honor;
A knight riding the desert winds
Chasing a dry stretched horizon
Hunting the sands of time,
That when the mists of life have faded
And fogs of nightmares disappeared
I may live in your heart forever,
A knight that found life between dunes
But gave it all away in the alters of love.
Tell tales of the sculptures I built for you;
Of the love that stood tall and firm
Of a passion that surged to the greatest of heights,
Say it had fine curves of your smile
As if I had the patient skills to perfects it,
Say it towered across the sky
As if I had the time to watch it grow,
Talk of its love beyond beauty
As if I had the heart to fantasize it so.
