Champaign Corolla: farther from us now

Reflection of a man walking in the rain.

The Traveler

Pain the traveler, my angel
time for me to go, to die
in my mind, in my worry
in my echo, in my staying

pain the borrower, my song
aching for more time, to die
in my love, in my touch
in my silence, in my night

my angel, time for me to go
