Softly echoing through the night,
Dancing like fire upon my dreams,
Are footsteps of memories from long ago,
Silently crashing upon time's golden shores.
Gently teasing my innermost thoughts,
Playing with my heart's desires,
Time takes my dreams and tears them apart,
Tempting my soul with the promise of fire.
I dance alone in the light of youth,
Yet one day, my time will come -
and through the darkness, I'll learn the truth
Of who I am and what I've become.
