Roaming through wild poppy fields

In the land which dreams dwell in,

where love  and hate and life begin;

where swiftly the deep rivers flow

from lost lands of long ago.

I wander through wild poppy fields

Underfoot the sweet earth yields….

I see the flowering fruit trees start.

Their blossoms gather round my heart…

I hear the sparrows sing with joy

And bees their busy wings employ.

In those lost lands I saw your face

And now I long for your embrace.

Are you real or make believe?

From this earth, we all take leave.

Earth to earth and ash to ash

Glory, pride and boasting pass.

Leave me now, my ghostly one

Soon I too will be called on.

Nothing lasts but truth is real

Keep the faith and your ideals.

Earth to earth , we’ll rest in clay

We must give ourselves away

Softly on this earth I roam

Seeking  yet my love and my home

and until the very end

Love eternal may descend
