sailing into eternity

To watch the rising dawn
Ever pursue the arrow of time
Waking nights and endless dreaming
Behold, the city of forever
Astride her ramparts the sentinels wait
Echoes of songs, the future’s herald
Upon the great Sky River I walk
Streaming over infinity’s threshold
And the stars cycle forth
Day to day, Age to Age
We sail into eternity
