our refrain
beats the same
whether passing hands
pass forgotten
or unquiet ripples
cast by lips are lost
the echo longing
still resounds
though stillness
deeper still abounds
the refrain
remains the same
and still

  1. Yesterday’s sighs,
    Still, Still, Still,
    carry deep ties…

    The night is peaceful all around you,
    Still, Still, Still,
    time and distance never plied through…

    Close your eyes let sleep surround you,
    Still, Still, Still,
    the soul of Us beats on true and true…
