Deep within has my spirit ached
Like desert thirst so long unslaked.

Remember: a Día de los Muertos tribute

by Profe Steve (Sorry for the long absence. School has been insane.)

Silent years so aimless pass As grains seep through the hourglass.

Silent years so aimless pass As grains seep through the hourglass. Life is bustle, much to do, Youth evaporates like dew.

Slow down, slow down and take a breath, Quiet moment, still as death.

Slow down, slow down and take a breath, Quiet moment, still as death. Deeply has my spirit ached Like desert thirst so long unslaked.

Vivid I recall your eyes, Dancing, laughing stars of blue;

Vivid I recall your eyes, Dancing, laughing stars of blue; Playful grin that lights my way, Gentle kiss for which I pray.

So long lost in misty tomes Wave that over salt sea foams.

So long lost in misty tomes Wave that over salt sea foams. Dusty mem’ry my heart hears Evokes the salty gentle tears.

In candle flame your spirit breathes, Comfort smoke of copal seethes.

In candle flame your spirit breathes, Comfort smoke of copal seethes. Wings of monarchs draw you home, To cempasuchil attar’s dome.

Food and drink now to refresh, And water sweet cools borrowed flesh.

Food and drink now to refresh, And water sweet cools borrowed flesh. Gentle music, lost in trance, One last lonely phantom dance.

My love was e’er unshakable, Spoken vows unbreakable,

My love was e’er unshakable, Spoken vows unbreakable, Through long ages love remains, Echoed in my soul’s refrains.

All too soon returns the light And bids your soul again take flight.

All too soon returns the light And bids your soul again take flight. Sweet communing one brief night, I bid adieu with misted sight.
