2. I.

Cermië, 2987 TA

The summer wind is winter in your eyes
and dawn as nightfall's shadow on your face,
a fragile truth amidst a thousand lies.

A veiling cloud on gleaming silver skies
obscures the softness of your mild-eyed grace.
The summer wind is winter in your eyes.

So young and yet beyond your years so wise,
as ice and fire both in my embrace,
a fragile truth amidst a thousand lies.

Yet hope must be as sorrow in disguise,
as an illusion that we vainly chase.
The summer wind is winter in your eyes.

I dare not breathe, watch as the sunlight dies
and vanishes without a single trace.
The summer wind is winter in your eyes,
a fragile truth amidst a thousand lies.
