‘lost you to the horizon’

you’ve been walking and walking away
i wonder if you’ll make it back
long ago i lost you to the horizon
swallowed up in the blazing sun
scorched skin and parched i’m dying
i pray you’ve just gone for water
that you’ll return and nourish me
with your regenerating moisture
but it’s been as long as it ever was
and the time it slips away
with all of me i must cling to this hope
it is all that remains for me
