Strangers Came To Stay


My loved ones went away, only
strangers came to stay. This is not a dream
but a nightmare that became reality.

Those I held so dearly were taken
away from me. I'm starting to feel
I'm drifting out at sea.

Of precious moments way back
when, are all I have to cling too.
They never seemed important then.

The dreams we dreamed together,
are like footprints in the sand. The
winds of change have swept them away.

No trace can now be found. I'm living
now in silence, with only echo's from
the past. Voices in the distance, from a
heaven that's so vast.

Yes my dream became a nightmare.
The hands of time are still. Although
memories will never fade, and I
know they never will.
