Ways End

The road’s over,
you’ve reached your goal.
I’ve accompanied you this far,
with all my strength,
Now you must go on alone.
My heart, which I have given you,
you take with you – it will show you the way.
Your heart you gave me,
will comfort me when I think of you.
When we meet again,
the sky is one sea of stars.
and wipes out my tears,
like they never existed.
