Along the road that echoes our memories,
A melody chimes in the back of my mind.
Innocence: the journey you take all makes sense;
Tracing my steps to get out of your bind.
I canít help but remember holding you tight
Beneath the cherry trees that wept their pink tears.
Sakura, donít cry under the broken sky,
We knew it wouldn't last over the years.
Wind vainly lifts dead petals up through the air,
My heart pines for a sip from those lips of wine.
An eternity passes in mere seconds;
Emotions and reality entwine.
I awake from my dream with glassy eyes
Though nothing but silence shall watch me weep.
I stare at the road I still recognize,
Filled with thoughts that still haunt me while I sleep.
