Tis your rhyme
That transcends all time.
Tis my mind
To you I send this time.

You opened my eyes
A long time ago
And led me to a path—
Down I did go;
But you now have
Turned and gone;
Your eyes are closed 
This very dawn.

Tis hard for me
To comprehend—
For it was you
Who did send—me
To the place I am now.
Lost in space and games
You left
With misunderstanding
On your brow.

Turn around and walk
Toward the horizon you once did see,
For we shall stop and talk
Like a smooth pebble 
To the serene and shifting sea.
Skipping beyond the beaches of sand
We will love, live and be
Both in the palm
Of each other’s hand.
