The last box packed, set by the door.
With a sigh, key thrown to the floor.
I'll take one last look then I'm gone.
That never again here I'm drawn.
"Close your eyes and see me fly
To you in dream, sweet lullaby."
Why do these words still sing to me,
Of Yesterday's sweet memory.
"Hand picked by God & sent to you
I am the one - you know it's true..."
Such soft words echoed in heart,
Dare I believe, even in part?
"Look no further, weary man
Stop and rest - it's in His plan"
Upon the wall in deepest blue,
Yesterday's Angel holds me true.
"You have journeyed many years
Cried your share of guilt and tears..."
Would seem I've many more to go,
Nothing's left here for me, I know.
"I see all that's in you soul
I am here to mend you whole"
I'll hold your promise as a token,
Though some hearts are meant to be broken.
"Look no further, cry no more
I am who you're looking for..."
I hear your words but cannot see
You standing anywhere near me.
"See me come to you in white
Walk with me all through the night"
‘Tis true by night we dance in dream,
But by day die in voiceless scream.
"I stir your passion deep inside
Give in to me - you need not hide."
Alas, there nothing left within,
Somehow all died, in giving in.
"Open up and feel no shame
Our love is pure, a burning flame"
Whereby a touch forsakes the name,
Till all that's left is tears and blame.
"Look no further, see me now
To you mi-Lord, I humbly bow..."
I am not worthy, see me not,
Tomorrow's dream holds me forgot.
"I am your lady - ecstacy
I hold you close - confide in me"
Release from me thy lure of lust,
By what bonds dare you hold my trust?
"Your soul is mingled now with mine
Inseparable through all space and time"
A wounded soul that never flies
Nor dreams by silenced lullabies.
"Look no further - God sent me
To set your captive spirit free..."
Of all the words you've given me,
The truest of all these must be.
Good-bye dearest angel of blue.
I will look no further for you.
An oak frame left upon the wall,
I turn from face, from words, from all.
On my way out, locking the door
Of memories I'll hold no more.
If Yesterday's angelic host
Or Tomorrow's forgotten ghost.
'Tis true, Love lasts forever,
Only her memory slips away.
