Will the winds of time blow shadows across your face? (Triolet)
Shadows on the Moon

Across the moon the shadows race,
dim silhouettes of days gone by.
As I reach out to grasp a trace,
across the moon the shadows race,
they blur the features of your face.
Though my heart breaks, I cannot cry.
Across the moon the shadows race,
dim silhouettes of days gone by.
