A Requiem for Love

Once upon a spring
When birds from faraway lands
Came calling to us
We ran through flaming forests
Our hearts fluttering as one

Once upon a year
When stars fell like pouring rain
From nebulous nights
We dreamed of unending skies
Our souls soaring to heaven

Once upon an age
When sunsets became bloodless
Like fading flowers
You and I sat in the dark
Our hands tangled in silence

Once upon a life
When those tired days were dying
Like trees in winter
You and I lay in the snow
Our love frozen stiff in time.
