For once we had

Sight of them floating the seas
fearlessly soaring the skies
claiming the horizon beyond and the shores below

Time flied
present blurred the eyes
clouding the judgements long found
the truth known young
by the bone of our bones

For once we had

Young blood knowing, believing
all there was
blood boiling for the quest
of reaching the stars

Thirst for the lights
thirst for the heights
thirst to see beyond
and all

But now hands cup ashes
the dust of growing up
the death yet waited to be called upon
To rise up to this sky like a phoenix

Only if remembered.
