Wind

Here is the wind

Softly blowing in your hair

Here is the wind

Gently caressing your tears all away

 

Here is the wind

Which you only know when it’s gone

 

Here is the wind

Who cries for the lost souls

Here is the wind

Who howls in anguish

 

Here is the wind

Who wishes to stop and be the air

Here is the wind

Who cannot and will always just be there
