Beyond This World by Losmios Beyond This World by Losmios

Lay down,
your sweet and weary head.
Night is falling.
You have come to journey’s end.

Sleep now,and dream
of the ones who came before.
They are calling,
from across the distant shore.

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see.
All of your fears will pass away.
Safe in my arms,
you’re only sleeping.

What can you see,
on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea,
a pale moon rises.
The ships have come,
to carry you home.

And all will turn,
to silver glass.
A light on the water.
All souls pass.

Hope fades,
Into the world of night.
Through shadows falling,
Out of memory and time.

Don’t say,
We have come now to the end.
White shores are calling.
You and I will meet again.
And you’ll be here in my arms,
Just sleeping.

What can you see,
on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea,
a pale moon rises.
The ships have come,
to carry you home.

And all will turn,
to silver glass.
A light on the water.
Grey ships pass
Into the West.


I was commisioned to do this piece by *BlueFlyer. In real life, she was a friend of my one of my most beloved online friends, ~Luckys-Lady
It has been a great honor to make this piece, with ~Luckys-Ladys title character Atlanta in the center, and her favorites of my own characters with her.

It's been a very emotional piece for me to make, and instead of feeling sad that she is gone, I've felt happy, hoping that she has seen my efforts from wherever she is now, and I take pride in what I've accomplished, all in her honor. Thank you *BlueFlyer, for giving me the oppurtunity to make this piece of art. :heart:

Lyrcis; Annie Lennox's Into the West

I hope you have found peace my friend, and everything your heart ever desired. :heart:

Stumbled across this and was very moved by it. Went to see what might be seen @ Luckys-Lady page (if it was still up) so I could see your inspiration... so sad, it's all blank. :(

Losmios, you're my hero! I just love horses and draw them for a long time, but I can't express their some-free-and-windy nature the way you do. Then, thank you for sharing your works :smooch:

Absolutly stunning art work. Also, this song is one very close to my heart ever since I bought the soundtrack.

Beautiful poses you've given the unicorns, and I love the different coats you've given them.

Jag älskar den här bilden, den är så vacker och känslosam att jag får välbehagsrysningar. Det känns verkligen som om hästarna som står där uppe och blickar ut över fälten har något ödmjukt, något stolt i sina blickar. Som att de tar farväl av någon som de hedrar, det är verkligen något respektfullt i deras blickar.

För övrigt känns det lite som om en bild man skulle kunna sätta i slutet av en bok. En bok där det varit mörkt och älskade har fått sätta livet till, men i slutet så vinner den goda sidan och ingenting var förgäves.

Lång kommentar, var bara tvungen att få häva ur mig mina tankar för dina bilder är väldigt duktiga på att sätta igång min fantasi :)

In the last few days, I have found myself returning and returning to look at this amazing piece of art. It is peaceful and powerful at the same time. The way you have portrayed Atlantis is just amazing. He is just so obviously the leader at that moment, and the way you have made him just so white, it is amazing. You can't picture that herd of inspirational creatures being anywhere else but at the end of the world. The breeze rippling through the grass is so real, I can almost smell the rain approaching. This is just.... it escapes words.

I will most definitely buy a print of this, just when I have the money. I just sit here staring at it.

May ~Luckys-Lady rest in peace forevermore.
