Like the face of a friend, his head finally
Going under a wave, drowning, the sun
Goes down, sets in a flood of mountain,
Of Cloud, of night, goes down, beyond
Our reach, no lifeguard in time, no boat,
Hope dims; like survivors we gather on
The beach of the day, helplessly there
To watch as time rehearses the end we
All know is coming with the waves of
Time, and we stand helplessly back and
Watch the sun setting,; the promise of
Morning, the continuous afternoon, now
Wear down to this, and we watch as
The face of our friend, his whole head
Goes under the ominous wave of night,
The darkness we all know is waiting.
