As the darkness swells all the stars awaken
My fingers stretch towards the day's fading light.
My naked arms, lingering forsaken,
Bare to the growing chill of the night

I dwell amid those I have always known
In an ages-long cycle that comes and goes.
Feeling time pass, I stand still as a stone:
While around my feet the tide of life flows.

Again I have weathered coldness and strife.
Now I stand at the far edge of the dark,
I feel myself spiralling closer to life
As the light composes a longer arc.

Once more my skin sheltered from prying eyes
And my guise swaying amongst paradise.
