Luminous, intoxicating, the aurora of the sun
Resplendent rays, cast a shadow, upon fading ruins
A question of finality, and the ending of a dream
Knowingly rests upon the tongue, of solitude and silence hewn

The resounding cry of failure, the Autumn air consumes
Fading to a memory, the warmth of summer's fire
A frozen epitaph will stand, buried amidst a mantle of snow
The wind will sing an elegy, of triumph, defeat and tragedy

And so begins the fall
A life departs this hollow shell
An ember's smoke transcends the fire
Released, ascending fate's design

A monument of sorrow
To a life long imposed
Ashen remains of immolation
Fading into Winter's desolation

Fading, the ember dies
Consumed, this life departs


from Toward the Empyrean, released February 18, 2013
