If I Should Go…

Do not weep for me
Though I am gone
It was a strange visit in a strange land
Do not weep for me
For I am home…
Save your tears for someone else
Don’t be caught in a slew of sorrow
I was caught up
In the twinkle of an eye
I was found
The twinkle in his eye – I was
He saw me – and I was stolen away
Do not weep for me
Imprison my tear
Hold it captive
It belongs with my memory
Shut your eyes and catch it
Swim with me in yesterday
Please – never lose this
Keep it – let it ease your mind
Hold a glare to the heavens
I can see me
In the reflection of your eye
Do not weep for me…

But weep…
Weep for beauty
For Glory
Cry out for tomorrow
When we meet again
Weep ye grieving
Weep all who remain
But not for me
Only for beauty
Let your tears roll like billows of the sea
Paint your face with tomorrow’s sunset
Flood your soul
Drown in your hope
Get lost in the horizon
Weep for love
But for me – hold your tears

The moon whispers softly – this light is not my own
