Winter wastes the middle hours when daylight seldom breaks the night
Springtime comes ignites the flowers, cascading snowdrifts into streams
Summer last toasts starlit skies and powers solar driven dreams

Letters piled beside my chair hoping, praying for come true dreams
Autumn stays without a care how empty is my every night
And you, you left without despair, crossing broken hearted streams

Fall gather up this dying life, leaves flying, drying rock bottom streams
White promise whisper, winter crying, covers crystal shattered dreams
And letters written find springtime flames in blooming jasmine night

’till summer night brings streams of new beginning dreams
