Far, far, far as you can see
there is no sign of leaves or birds or dreams.
Yes, look around and tell me,
where I can find your traces.
I went to town and all the places
we visited last time
with melodies and memories
and mourning.

They told me you were gone,
and I had come from far to pick you up
with hands to warm you
arms to hold you,
dreams to comfort you.

So when I hesitate to turn around
you well know why:
like leaving all your life behind 
like walking off the job
of seeing you
as all the leaves
and all the birds
and all the dreams
