A dark night, cool wind in my hair,
foggy lights I could not bear.
Corners called for a dive,
swimming in the air, for what I strive.
Marble floors beneath no more,
left above beside the door.
Tears in my eyes, I'm moving fast,
In a flash I see the past.
A moment when paralysis struck,
a moment when I was out of luck.
A moment when she to me had smiled,
And O was I as thus beguiled.
Now I'm asleep, forever more,
beating heart to the core.
