Whispering Sky


  • Confusion

    Whispering Sky

    Teach me of love, oh wandering wind,

    Redeem me now for I have sinned;


    I left a woman weeping with my memory in her head,

    I spoke to her of love knowing nothing of what I said;


    I though I was fit, but I was just drunk on life,

    The lover’s blade cuts like a dull edged knife;


    A spectral rainbow haunted my day,

    A whisper summoned me from the hill where I lay;


    I walked, wondering, under the sky for a time,

    The whispers question filled my head so sublime;


    I dreamt in the day, the sky was so clear

    But the answer to the question I could not hear;


    The wind warned me of coming rain,

    I couldn’t listen, I was so used to pain;


    I spun with my arms wide in the green, open fields,

    The magic of the sun made my heart seem healed;


    Fantasy ships sailed around the clouds and into my world

    And in front of the fireplace of my mind where I lay curled;


    The horizons swirled in front of my eyes,

    I left behind my loving lies;


    I ask you of love, oh wandering wind,

    Say a word before my day grows dim.
