My Little Poem
– Ponies with Swallow the Sun
She Visits Her Friends
I can still see their smiles.
All my friends' familiar faces,
They stood here beside me at the eve of the gala.
Through this one night, all nights for years
Over the centuries, over the mortal lifetimes…
After gala I go to see my friends,
Meet them in their rest,
Give them my time…
This one night
I remember them, put flowers on their graves,
When they've left me
Where I cannot follow…
We had our days together.
Our laughter, rich and heartfelt.
In their company I felt peace:
Every moment's measureless ease,
No more a queen,
Not a goddess,
Just a friend.
Could I ever forget them…?
Is this the price I pay for immortality?
See them wither and fade over the passing times,
Carry the memories, when the world around forgets?
When their smiles pass away, when it's all that's left…
Haven't I paid enough when I lost her?
Haven't I paid enough when I scarred the moon?
Haven't I had enough toll on my neck?
Why must I pay anymore…?
Why should I care of the mortal bonds,
How could I heal my aching heart,
When they only leave me?
After gala I went to see my friends,
Left new flowers on the countless graves.
Wiped the tears, when the solitude held no answers.
"Goodbye for now… my new friends await me."
