We laugh, we cry

We wonder why

We’re cast upon

This coil to lie

In wait for death

For the wolves to come

And take away

What all we’ve earned-


We lie, we love

We float above

The fray below

Like white winged doves

And whisper our


That nothing mortal

Ends our dance-


We’ll have our time

You say to me

Our day will come

Just wait and see

And till it does

I’ll hold you tight

Within these words

We write tonight-


We gasp, we fly

We rise together

Over gold Sahara

And English heathers

Over muddy Mississippi’s banks

And Arctic tundra’s glacial flanks-


It is apart we love tonight

Bound only by these words we write.
