Swan Song

Long before guilt was born
And pain built a home
In the corners of my heart
Before a careless mistake 
Became my swan song…
I walked, perhaps
A step too fast or too slow
But never by your side
That is why I sigh
As I say goodbye
The tears swiftly rise
There is no place to hide 
In this world I don’t belong 
Indeed that’s why my love
Became my swan song
I spent days loving you
Added minutes to thoughts of you
But a fault you rightly saw
Time is no friend to me
I sing in the last moments of life
Flashes of yesterday
And hopes of morrow
All appear as one 
My swan song…
