I see noises, imagine voices but I can’t hear a sound
Just the startling appearance of a lady
In the longest white gown
Like a distant love, that was lost never found
In these four white walls, in an even more lonely town
Fast pass the clouds as they disappear
Swift are the birds who approach the sky with no fear
Endless seem their limits and deep their depth
As we live and we learn, then we die, no regrets.
I solemnly declare, as I stare into space
For a better way of living, a beginning I crave
Two hands clasped together, on my knees so I pray
For there is nothing left to do when you have fallen this way
Doors locked and windows, but yet open are hearts
I stare at my reflection for as long as it lasts
Like the strings and the keys and the drums
but they are the memories I try to remember but can’t.
The longest white gown
My hair plaited back
Bed neatly made, and I leave it like that
One soulful chair that reminds me of home
That warm gentle breeze can not keep me unknown
I am that strong female who stood until her time to fall
I shielded and blocked, took a blow for them all
The life that I live is not mine, but it fits
With the coldness of these walls and the words on my lips.
Just a tale I will inscribe for no one to see
Just a tale that I will tell for no one to believe
I am the expired life just waiting to drift
Pass the thick sky clouds in this morning mist
I will see noises, imagine voices but I can’t hear a sound
Please, remember the lady
In the longest white gown.
