The neanderthal looked out across the warming, summer plain His thoughts were distant and unformed, the slowly spinning seed of what The future held in store, impressions of a loneliness to counter sharply present pain A physical reminder of the spirit so enslaved, mortality is everywhere And everything in course, shall suffer death upon the end of chains locked to remorse The stains of misery that tarnish being shall not budge, but don't mistake this truth For somewhere you should tie your grudge, for life is short and pleasure holds The secret of the way, to everything that's sacred and can survive light of day The sun was rising with an aura of benevolence, and silence was mistaken for Candid indifference, by the time machine, its travelers journeyed from afar To see the dawn of man as it was haplessly before The covert rendezvous of man and beast was imminent The startled slave was reckless and so innocent Digging for a place to place some partial grave remains The visitors were careful to preserve his ancient space But avenues were crossed and mingled, broke forevermore The way home disappeared to them, a tragedy what's more Their home was still around, though now in separate dimension It could not be reached any more than could be reached Heaven They stayed awhile to witness what they had come here for Then traveled to the future where they might nearly restore A way to some familiar land of people standing tall Lost in time like the confused, estranged neanderthal We're all like children standing before a monolith Wondering what dreams may come and how this is perceived By those more intelligent than us, still, all shall settle into dust: The mystery of dawn that resides inside each of us A single mote of drifting, floating and wayward debris Happens across space and time carrying you and me The planet stays the same throughout all ages that pass As you and I go searching for anything that can last There is a knowing that is placed into the minds of some What's done is done and I can't now recall the meaning of it all The secrets of the universe are just too heavy to contain Within the mind of anyone, though passing through memories remain A flash of light, a fractal, and a common wish, to overturn the night And celebrate a Grecian kiss, the fragrance of the spring resembles My undying wish, and seasons of my life reflecting lunar hemispheres Bring around a purpose to act upon across the years Answers along the way lifting my poor heart with glee, reach out to you As they reach out to me, and someday we will see beyond the rising sun
