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
