These Words

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.
