The Last Beat Of My Heart

In the sharp gust of love
My memory stirred
When time wreathed a rose
A garland of shame

Its thorn my only delight
War torn, afraid to speak
We dare to breathe
Majestic, imperial, a bridge of sighs

Solitude sails in a wave of forgiveness
On angels’ wings
Reach out your hands
Don’t turn your back, don’t walk away

How in the world can I wish for this?
Never to be torn apart
Close to you
‘Til the last beat of my heart

At the close of day, the sunset cloaks
These words in shadowplay
Here and now, long and loud
My heart cries out

And the naked bone of an echo says
Don’t walk away
Reach out your hands
I’m just a step away

How in the world can I wish for this?
Never to be torn apart
Close to you
'Til the last beat of my heart

How in the world can I wish for this?
Never to be torn apart
'Til the last beat
'Til the last fleeting beat of my heart
