Tarrakkul the Gazzele
My Life, I Lay You Down
the moment before you departed
your crystal eyes
wrapped in golden lashes
oh you looked me,
you were smiling
tears of liquid love fell from your face to mine,
wrapped in each other's arms,
I still feel my head upon your chest,
the rising and falling of your breath,
your soft beard resting on my forehead.
I watched you embrace my father,
and fade in to the distance.
I wept, walking the empty streets before dawn.
My sister wept with me.
You flew across the skies,
tears brought sleep,
you dreamt of me,
of the love we have.
Knives to our hearts,
the people must live,
so our together must die.
Willing, thought it breaks us,
to sacrifice all, that the people may be free.
Your's in your land, mine in mine.
So it seems,
love sacrificed for love,
love made perfect in sacrifice.......
