To Remember

Open your eyes and the dream slips by
Too fast to grasp, until there's only now
Watch the sun rise in the Eastern sky
As the night is left where memories lie.

Forgetting, forgotten - the mind of man
The heights of knowledge cannot stand
Even a memory has to fade
In the rising dawn of a new day.

Our spirits know what our minds cannot fathom
Their memories aren't their own
Just like a voice, a song, a scene
Will draw our souls and take us home.

A place where the sun doesn't need to rise
And memories have no use
Where God is not a glimpse
And belief not something we choose.

For the dream is never lost
It's there again when we close our eyes
And to be born is only forgetting -
and to die is remembering why.
