To all those who hear me

here’s my tale

To all those who know me

here’s my tale

beneath a veil

a face so pale

it breaks when it smiles,

ever so frail

it’s a tale

it’s a tale

not a maiden

it’s a tale

it breathes and it lives

it flits and it sails

treasures in a bale

it carries for the sale

leaving no trail

into the dark vale

do you know my tale

Alas! I must have failed

lost it in the rale

as life set to sail

The End so prevailed

I have lost my tale

do you know my tale?

Oh, do you know my tale?
