"Lost and alone with these feelings of grief
Shrouded in doubts, no hope nor belief
Gone is the dawn of that welcoming smile
Begin now to travel your own Moonlight Mile
Loss is compounded by the conflict you feel
Turmoil of emotions; which are fake, which are real?
Everyone expects you to just keep on going
All of the while your secret not knowing.
Ghosts of a past age haunt waking sleep
Prey on the memories inside that you keep
Fear your intentions laid the path to her dying
Mindful recriminations of a heart not done crying
Now complicated by feelings anew
The sense of a love that is real, that is true
But what of your duty, the debt that you owe
Bound here in this time, no place you can go
Despite best intentions to maintain the veneer
Tell tale cracks of the white lies appear
Perhaps for the best now these secrets are known
To those that you care about, honesty shown.
Truth is your freedom despite self-derision
Lifting fog from your mind, restoring true vision
The road has been travelled, at the end you can smile
The bittersweet journey along your Moonlight Mile."
