Once I was a dreamer

Until life and despair

So kindly knocked upon my door

For they knew better than any,

That I was there

All they asked of me

Was all I that I have

And nothing more—

Thus by the cursed hands of—

Time

Forced was I,

To give them just that

All that I once could call mine

Let all the memories

Wither, and my fidelity,

Die—

Let,

The sunlight slip so softly

Through my hands

Into another world

Where the dreams, I once

Called mine

Now sleep

Captured ever more, in the

Relentless fall of the hourglass

—My memory—

All that I can call—joy—

Love—the sun of the heart—

Lost there,

With the crippling dark word, depart

Far from these hands of mine

Ever more kept by the silent—

Sands of time
