In the warm sun we’ll go walking
though we’ll not be arm in arm

We are echoes of each other
keeping loved ones safe from harm

Though we’re distant, we’re together
and I feel the path you’re on

When I dance my solo rhythm
to the sound left by your song.

May my lonely tears flow into
the footsteps you leave behind,

And where waking dreams are waiting
may you seek me out, to find

Though the world we knew is broken,
and we are tired and sleep evades,

Our hope is quietly dancing
and love’s echo does not fade.
