Together they rose as mourners do,
To take their last walk,
Holding hands as lovers do,
Silently they went without talk.
Only did they feel each other’s love,
Within the silent grip of their hands,
Burning as the fires crave above,
Forever upon the lands.
Tears poured from their eyes,
So much they could not say goodbye,
For words became so heavy,
That none came even if they tried.
Before the boats, they touched one last time,
Holding both of their hands like it was a crime,
Together they shut their eyes as virgins do,
And kissed each other goodbye.
Naked they came, naked they go,
Oh, how all the souls of the shores looked around,
As if they were a spectacular show,
Even great Charon was spellbound.
Quietly she got upon the ferry,
Her clothes were forever gone,
The horns blasted for boat could not terry,
Quickly the ferry moved along.
The hundred years went so fast,
Oh, how they wished they could stay,
Oh, that time would stop its task,
That forever in their loves they could play.
They watched as their love moved on,
As a giant emptiness swelled inside,
Oh, how could they from each other be gone,
Their distance to become forever so wide.
Oh, how he wished to fight,
To be with his love forever so true,
But the gods with all were to strong with all their might,
There was nothing that he could do.
