A shadow weeps upon the mountain

consumed by longing, lust and fear

Alone it travels to and fro

in search of something we don’t know…

of something more

a different road

a river’s flow

a stone to throw

It hears a voice –

an angel’s touch

to soothe the ache of lonely silence.

Its only guidance, only solace

throughout this winding path

to glory.
