Lost in Time

These wild sounds are blocking my eyes.
The current song sends me back.
I focus away and get lost in memories.

My mind sees a time of pain and fear.
I was lost in a world too large.
Now I hear the music again and begin to weep.

Once again I am walking through the square.
I remember the confusion of those days.
The day I fell off is coming back.
In a few short weeks my dreams had been lost.

All that I had hoped for became impossible.
I had nightmares at night and no dreams in the day.
I could see my destiny as only a fog of ice and smoke.
I stumbled under the weight of such pain.

Now my back has grown strong.
My heart is full of bold courage.
I have already seen the worst
and even the bad today is better.

I open my eyes and see the sun shining.
