We Cry Together
Standing Melancholy Portent Erect by the stream watching life pass me by. Day after day Wind strafing my torso Sun caressing my skin white as pristine snow. Near a maiden standing Close to my trunk Melancholy Pondering Alone by the stream feeling life pass her by. Minute after minute Human mimicking nature As the sun slips towards the horizon we cry together.
