Adieu Adagio

Adieu my friend, adieu my heart

You are far away dreaming,

As the sun sets in the withering distance

And I find myself alone

With the wide world of enduring beauty before me

With the stars by my side

And the evening wind on my cheeks

I once loved you and you loved me back

We danced and smiled and cried

Dreamed in a land faraway

Of make-belief plains and grand plans

A serene adagio in the rain

My tears are the only raindrops that dance on this plateau now

Inspired by David Lynch’s “The Elephant Man” A tale of John Merrick
