Home is but the dream, which ye be?
The wanderer in me art thou a passing memory!
Withering th’ lullaby hills sung-
unto the moonshadow harp beyond
casting shadows of the past into a moments joy,
Though thoughts hath sank beneath th’ tears surface-
to look beneath thy breast shall find breathe nor beat
thyself shall be more than a memory!

Is this the place thou did stand?
To long for heaven before death staring up at stars
’tis haunting to watch thee but not notice me-
’twas the moonshadow harp
O! How thou once were but in thought,
No face dost come so clear as the day hath-
in thought ‘tis nothing but a loss of form
but my heart hast felt the warmth!

To hold a love without a form,
who shall care ‘tis th’ heart that fell
unto the moonshadow harp beyond-
hast brought me visions of thou without a dream
’twas in woken thought I saw thee real,
But harps do break and love doth die-
th’ memories hath spoken to the final rest
too long hath I looked for heaven before death,
We’ve both stared at stars all the same
’tis haunting to be alone once more again.
