Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Threshold
 

 
On the threshold of illusion.
We count the cost of yesterday.
At our feet love lies abandoned.
We never saw it slip away.

The path ahead is paved with sadness.
The door is closing all too fast.
We reach out in our isolation.
To keep the magic in our grasp.

The dreams of failure come to haunt us.
On lonely nights filled with despair.
We wake to find the same tomorrow.
Still reaching out for what’s not here.

Like empty words without emotion.
Written on a lifeless page.
We seek again the flight of freedom.
Trapped within our gilded cage.

So we stumble in the darkness.
In search of hope that once burned bright.
With questions longing to be answered.
To put this wrong once more to right.

Like souls that cry out for forgiveness.
The sin committed not by choice.
In prayers that still remain unanswered.
No faith now left within their voice.

The destination waits before us.
So should we go or should we stay?
The signposts blur with indecision.
As love‘s sweet music we replay.

And if ever two were one, forever
If ere one dream was meant to be.
Then as I open wide this doorway.
I’ll find you waiting there for me.
