Journey From Mariabronn

  • Two began together, lived as one
    Each one to the other had become
    More than a friend, living to meet a common end
    They were true, each one knew all is well

    Still the elder knew it could not last
    Hidden memories from the young one's past
    Drew them apart
    Both knew that deep within his heart they must part
    Each their own separate way

    It puzzles me how we can be so close and yet worlds apart
    Can it be, my memory has torn my life in two
    >From the very start
    I screamed for the devil to let me be
    I called to the heavens to set me free
    Today I prayed for the answer and not one
    Of the gods in the sky would rescue me

    Dreams of fortune fill the young one's mind
    Learn the worldy ways of hope to find
    Love on the way, searching to find the light of day
    In his soul he had found his own way

    But to each other they soon will return
    Destiny fulfilled, their words will burn an eternal flame Writer/s: KERRY LIVGREN, KERRY A LIVGREN, STEVE WALSH
