Road to Eternity


Moonlit Night. Highway, Levitan Isaac 1897-1898


I’ve been walking all this day
but no-one did I see
my backpack causes me to sway
I pass another birch tree

Uneasy visions haunt my head
when will I ever be free?
moonlight brightens up my tread
I pass another birch tree

The weight I carry feels like lead
will it ever let me be?
Where do I find a sleeping bed?
I pass another birch tree

I want to hide a treasure
where no-one can find it but me.
Its value is far beyond measure
I pass another birch tree

 My wary steps go on and on
though I have a wounded knee
my leg is numb, the pain is gone
I pass another birch tree

I’ll keep silent and be still
the secret is safe with me
I’ll keep walking on until
I pass the final birch tree
