The advent of autumn
Leaves fall from sullen branches
Like the hope that spring will arrive
Welcoming colder weather
While bidding farewell to warmth

/

Starlight pours forth from the heavens
Bathing the cold earth in a silver liquid
Falling softly upon my lifeless body
The wreckage of an earthly endeavor
Flesh and bones that were left behind
Because they only served as restraints
Carbon constructions intended to bind
Our sullen hearts became like cages
Our star-bound eyes rendered blind
But tonight I will leave my body
Ere sunrise, I leave these curses behind
Not a single vestige, not a single trace
Of an earthly existence, will be left to find

Leave this body behind
Leave this body behind
I am headed for the stars

While I am immersed in blinding light
Flesh and bones are sublimated into pure energy
And as such, my energy becomes entwined
With stardust and cosmic infinity
Entwined like lovers that delicately grace the sky
Dancing back and forth into eternity
With everlasting and fervent intensity
