Flowing Shades

Now, open wide your hearts dismay
With lowered head to shed a tear,
That river flows in shades of grey
To stain the hopes that you portray
And all the dreams that you endear.
Now, open wide your hearts dismay
And lift your eyes, let them survey
The streaming clouds above this sphere,
That river flows in shades of grey
Against a mountain break and play
And learn of peace that lingers near.
Now, open wide your hearts dismay
Forget your woes and their display
Let waters drown your chilling fear
That river flows in shades of grey
Across the sulcus, wash away
The chain’s embrace that holds you dear…
Now, open wide your hearts dismay,
That river flows in shades of grey.
