On a planet
I once was born
A God in my own right

In my heart
And in my soul
I was all things in flight

I happened once
Upon a village
Things were unlike I knew

A beautiful place
I remember still
It’s there I first looked on you

Stars in the sky
A billion fold
Under passions eye they wink

A Goddess found
How remote the chance
Into oceans deep I sink

And who was
I Among so many
That you would share a look

But blind are we
In this so big
When fate has cast its hook
