Within your ruins you left your marks
On temple walls we find your art
These cryptic ciphers etched in stone
Ancient text of glyphs unknown
Depicted are your spells and laws
Phiarohs past and portal doors
Celestial travel for now eludes
Within these texts you left the clues
To transcend the heavens,to depart this world
To view the universe as if a pearl
In your wisdom we seek to find
The secrets withheld to free our minds.
As architects of all we know
The longer you leave us the less we grow
These primitive creatures you left behind
Evolved we have beyond the mine
No more we dig your earth and stone
To build your temples of blood and bone
As centuries past our world has changed
But one thing still remains
Patently we wait for your return
To teach your children all you’ve learned…
