Connecting with the Past

Published June 22nd, 2013

A mountain of nameless skeletons

Lost stories of unidentified

Once they lived like we do

Once they loved like we do

The silenced voices carries the wind

from the southern sea

in the land of sorrow

Once they had their names like we do

Once they loved like we do
