Mañana's Song.
(Tomorrows song; an old Gypsy lament)

A Gypsy lament dating back hundreds of years and associated with the legend of the Eagle and Dove.

As I sit and watch the ashes glow
Awaiting the hour my mind will sleep  
My thoughts turn to a brighter day
manana3Gone are the memories of yesterday,
Lost in this haze of self sorrow      
I prey to God my life will change  
prey for a new tomorrow  

I have no one with whom to share
This feeling of a new world dawning
Just memories are all I own and they are mine
My thoughts alone
Yet dreams I have these endless nights
But they to are full of sorrow  
So let me have this emptiness    
As I await a new tomorrow  

Take my heart and steal my soul
You will not end this torment
Waking up to call your name
Then find my bed is still the same
Empty and barren, lost without you
I'm living now on borrowed time
Remembering days, you once were mine  

If my dreams are not to be
And all my life I walk alone
If I find no love is there
Without your love, my life is bare
Then all my days, I'll walk alone
I'll dream and hope and love you every day
And prey tomorrow brings another day.
