The Sun was melting into the mirror
With clouds it painted the sky
We stared in wonder
As it sank under
Carefully leaving the last traces of its light

Onto the other orb across the ocean
Glowing orange, this giant emerged
It cried in longing
Never belonging
To the daytime, the keeper of the night

Sometimes you see it creeping through the window
Like a widow watching her children play
Her old lover was bound to the day

She tried for hundreds of years to revive him
All her efforts to no avail
But every evening
She swore she’d see him
Then he was gone, he would melt into the sea

Somehow he’d become locked in a limbo
Melting away day after day
He’d never hear her
Two million years
Had passed, her messages in vain, she’d gone insane

Painful loneliness
Endless emptiness
For the one she didn’t save
But the real surprise
She’d never realize
That it was she who’d passed away

And so she’d stare for all eternity
Her acceptance never in sight
Not her lover
Locked high above her
Her ghostly glow was locked inside the night
