​One Tender Kiss (The Lost Seasons) Prelude To The Garden Of Crystalline

This song is by Autumn Tears and appears on the album Love Poems For Dying Children, Act I (1996).

Paths of unbound memories
Tangled within the inner depths of love and sorrow
Untrodden by questioning footsteps
Unbroken by deafening silence

Washed away by rains of death
Beneath my feet, rivers of blood flow soundlessly
Seeds of anguish sown in the soil of my blackened heart

III. Remember
Ripples in the water casting distorted reflections
Over a face I shall never see again
My eternal beauty lost forever to my eyes

In exchange for one brief moment of true happiness
All my hopes and dreams in ruin, shattered like shards of

I fear no shameless victory nor welcome illustrious defeat
My loneliness ever feeding upon strands of my sanity...
As for now... I shall welcome dreams of majestic gardens
