Good Night Sweet Prince

Joaquin Hiding

Joaquin 4/30/05 – 4/12/07

My sweet little Joaquin left me this evening. He was a gentle soul who will be greatly missed. He left while dreaming of chasing butterflies with Boo in the woods.  We’ll be offline for a couple of days.

Let me fall
Let me climb
There´s a moment when fear
and dream must collide

Someone I am
Is waiting for courage
The one I want
The one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won´t heed your warnings
I won´t hear them

All I ask
All I need
Let me open whichever
door I might open

Let me fall
If I fall
Through the phoenix may
or may not rise

I will dance so freely
Holding on to no one
You can hold me only
If you too will fall
Away from all these
Useless fears and chains

Someone I am
Is waiting for my courage
The one I want
The one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won´t heed your warnings
I won´t hear

Let me fall
If I fall
There´s no reason
To miss this one chance
This perfect moment
Just let me fall.

  4. From: Lullabye #1

    Lay the moon to sleep
    to her flowing dreams
    in her slumber deep
    her shining star-eye gleams

    Rest your weary head
    in twilight so serene
    she, in sombre bed
    whispers what she’s seen

    No more will I know
    touch of his sweet breath
    love is slain by foe
    he passes now in death

    Lay the moon to sleep
    dream awhile of me
    as crows, their harvest reap
    remembered you will be
