A shining crystal hangs in my window
Trying to capture silent light and make a rainbow
But it's facing the North Star not the rising or dying sun
And cannot move now, it's frozen.
It sings to me of dreams I dare not remember
Of love and jewels and things I cannot touch
Of a life that will never be mine, never could be
Because like the jewel I face the wrong direction.
It's silver faces glint of miracles and wishes
Of starlit nights and star crossed lovers true
But it's also inside my heart and is breaking
As the clutching, scratching ice takes it and bites.
My heart is breaking with those crystal shards
A small jewel never given flight in the light
To scream in frozen pain and agony
To never capture the silent light....
So under moonlight, stars and black canvas
In painted dreams of knights, roses and jewels
A silhouette stands waiting to fly forever
And sheds a tear as fragile as my heart.
