At Least i Tried

It could be dark when it is early in the morning

Because sunlight never always tells the truth.

Our hearts wander in the shades of our hopes

As we wonder why we have been waiting for so long.

I hear your voice from a childish memory

When we tried to reach the sky of our dreams.

I remember the first step I made

Towards those playful arms –

I remember spinning around

And falling a few times.

There was always hope

In the middle of the dark;

There was always fear

In the middle of the day –

And it was then I knew

That nothing was what it seemed to be.

I fell and crawled a thousand miles

I tried to climb the mountains that kept us apart

I tried to sail the seas of the world

I always ended up in my room

Looking at the sky of our dreams.

It was nothing more than a wish

I knew would never come to me.
