when memories fail,
and I no longer recognize me,
take me to the sea shore,
and leave me there on the beach.
as the rays of the setting sun
sets the blue sky ablaze,
and the fingers of an approaching evening
tenderly closes my eyes one last time,
as the gentle waves of the sea
sing a haunting lullaby in my ears,
and the high tides cradle
and carry me to the comforting depth of the sea,
as this enchanting world slowly slips away,
let these last memories be engraved on my eyes.
and on the day of the new dawn,
may be in another little corner of the universe,
reincarnation, a new beginning.
when I open my eyes to start a new journey,
blessed with the last memories,
fortunate to be born in this earth,
this blue sky, the warm sands by the sea side,
endless expanse of a rolling sea,
where the setting sun goes down
every evening with a promise of
a new dawn,
let these last memories
be with me.
