Run through the sea of reeds, the fields in my dreams. Circle back to find me again. Let me know that you're here with me, while I find our way. Your hourglass moves much quicker than mine. The sands drift away too soon. Still, I see you as you used to be. Filled with exuberance and light. And when it's time to call it a day, my eyes are filled with tears and the falling sun. Together we walk through the fields together. Together we face the setting sun. In the distance, a colored bridge appears. Eventually I stop on its earthly side. You sit still and raise your head. And you make your way, to cross the rainbow. Without me. Yes, you cross the bridge without me. Slowly at first. Age and time fade away. Until you're running as you once did. Young and fun, and calling out to me all the way. I go on without you, though you remain in my heart. I go on without you, you'll always fill my heart.
