Capricorn92: ~The Last Sip of the Chalice~
What is it in the vague whisper of the water,
What is it in the enchanting humming of the leaf,
What is it in the playfulness of the white cloud
on this vast, calm blue
that drags you so into the depths of dreaming?
I am thinking
Not about the cloud,
Not about the water,
Not about the leaf,
Not about this vast, calm blue,
Not about this whole;
I am thinking about YOU,
You, the wholly kind,
I am thinking ONLY about you,
I am thinking about YOU.
Know this, only YOU [must] know this,
Stay with me, only YOU [must] stay with me,
YOU [must] read [me] the story of the cloud in the sky
YOU [must] spring in the goblet of existence
I have only this last sip left of my life,
YOU [must] drink the last sip off this empty chalice.

Capricorn92: it's been around 10 years that I'm listening to this song, and still each time I listen to it, just when the very first note starts I find myself full of passion, love and nostalgia...it's an amazing feeling when you willingly give away a little piece of your soul and you shelter it in a beautiful harmony and let it echo through time...
La Valse d'Amélie by Yann Tiersen
Capricorn92: Gone to the Unseen
At last you have departed and gone to the Unseen.
What marvelous route did you take from this world?
Beating your wings and feathers,
you broke free from this cage.
Rising up to the sky
you attained the world of the soul.
You were a prized falcon trapped by an Old Woman.
Then you heard the drummer's call
and flew beyond space and time.
As a lovesick nightingale, you flew among the owls.
Then came the scent of the rosegarden
and you flew off to meet the Rose.
The wine of this fleeting world
caused your head to ache.
Finally you joined the tavern of Eternity.
Like an arrow, you sped from the bow
and went straight for the bull's eye of bliss.
This phantom world gave you false signs
But you turned from the illusion
and journeyed to the land of truth.
You are now the Sun -
what need have you for a crown?
You have vanished from this world -
what need have you to tie your robe?
I've heard that you can barely see your soul.
But why look at all? -
yours is now the Soul of Souls!
O heart, what a wonderful bird you are.
Seeking divine heights,
Flapping your wings,
you smashed the pointed spears of your enemy.
The flowers flee from Autumn, but not you -
You are the fearless rose
that grows amidst the freezing wind.
Pouring down like the rain of heaven
you fell upon the rooftop of this world.
Then you ran in every direction
and escaped through the drain spout . . .
Now the words are over
and the pain they bring is gone.
Now you have gone to rest
in the arms of the Beloved.
