When we become as one
We may survive love’s labour done
And then alone left behind to pick the bones
Of the living and the dead, easily led, easily bled.
The curtain opens, but it rains
And Laughter pauses pain
Of the mountains we’ve yet to climb
In your fading light at the dawn of time
A storm approaches of looking forward, looking back
We paling images, forever looking back
We cut the cord and yet the poet speaks his mind
And narcissistically intones the end
The end of all time, all my time
At labour’s end, will freedom be your friend
Or will it bring you strife?
Or few sweet raindrops will bring your heart to life?
Will bring your heart to life?
Wonderful life, beautiful life.
