Who had covered me gently while I slumbered in fragrant spring
Who blindfolded me from the crimson blood tainting the pure white snow
The time in which we spent
will be forever embedded in the web of scarlet
in my bosom,
in my soul,
on my conscience.
For the scars on your ephemeral body
are the marks of honor and loyalty
that you blindly follow,
Never looking back.
With the hands that sinned,
yet gently soothed me,
You uphold the code of days gone by
That separates warriors from cowards
The humble from the greedy
The dreamers from the fools...
Like the moon that fears to be alone, cling to the sky
Let me embrace you in these final moments
within this isolation of mourning red lilies,
to return the loving service and gentleness that you gave
As we lay together in the disappearing dream,
Let us slumber in eternal sleep
