From far beyond the veil of sleep 
some ancient voice does seem
to whisper my forgotten name 
weakly, yet solemnly. 

So remotely that one might think
it had been but a dream, 
echo of some illusive call 
of fleeting memory.

Yes, to believe such vain idea
no problem it would be,
if there was not this inscrutable
unrest within me... 

As if out of the deepest sea 
some creature seeks to rise, 
to wish its long denied existence 
back into my life. 

My secret name is whispered 
by a half-forgotten sigh 
and out of nothing, across my face,    
which is all petrified. 

Hot tears are running without end. 
A deeply troubling pain 
pulls me together inwardly, 
to be no more the same... 

From far beyond the veil of sleep 
some tune, ne'er before heard, 
is trav'lling on a fragile breath,    
to shake my frozen world.
