Hallucinations

I saw you walking
Only yesterday
When I ran to catch you
You disappeared
And the street was gray

The candle died
Now you are gone
For the flame was too bright
Now you are gone

I heard you laughing
With your laugh of gold
When I called out to you
Silence returned
And the air was cold

The castle fell
Now you are gone
And no more rings the bell
Now you are gone

I found a letter
On the day it rained
When I tore it open
There in my hands
Only ash remained

The castle fell
Now you are gone
And no more rings the bell
Now you are gone

I felt you breathing
As I fell asleep
When I reached to touch you
No one was there
And the night was deep

The candle died
Now you are gone
For the flame was too bright
Now you are gone

I saw you walking
Only yesterday
When I ran to catch you
You disappeared
And the street was gray

The castle fell
Now you are gone
No more rings the bell
Now you are gone
