In Tulum

Ancient City

Ciao ancient city
Answer your history calls
Where have you hid the people
Carved on these stone walls

Don’t stand alone in silence
Abandoned by the stretch of time
Don’t leave this world in ruins
Your beauty stolen like an ancient crime

There are those here left to see you
See how far they will roam
Look at how far they have traveled
So far away from home

How great you hide your secrets
In every stone from ceiling to floor
A passage through every doorway
Every archway of a place no more

No thieves in your marketplace
Dressed of a time gone by
Paved streets like sand have crumbled
Covered by grass and sky

Still ancient city
A colorful story you leave behind
Etched deep is your constant reminder
Remnants of an architects design

Adios ancient city
Stand for all to see
Stay for another tomorrow
And all through history
