It is my confession in my very last hour
On my death bed with my body withering like winter grass
That it is only you I love
My long lost love in a land yonder
My thoughts veer to you
With your beauty so vibrant and true
In my darkest hour flashes of our youth besiege my lightless eyes
I curse this dreadful body
For a long journey to you
I know it would surely faulter

Know that in the mad house that has become my mind
My madness is for you and no one thereafter
You whom not even my current lover can measure
Surely know I will continue always and forever to worship at your alter
Long after my body has gone and my soul passes onward
Know that I will die with regret
That I wouldn't accept your invitation to departure across the great sea
Now I die when I think what our life would be 

As I'm about to travel through the gates
To an enternity of devine salvation or firery regret
I long to gaze upon your beautiful eyes one more time before I take the long sleep
Please know that my love is endless
For you and only you
My one true love
In a land yonder
