Will you take me to sing the stars?

we will lie down

on the bosom of the earth

and forget ourselves there

we will  sing and gaze

until our souls rise up

until we can scarcely remember

that we have bodies down there

flesh and bone to bring us back

and make us human again


will you teach me the words?

I’m afraid I never learned them

I am shamefully mute

but I have the melody

pulsing in my heart

I think I could learn

if you helped just a little


will you hold my hands?

don’t let go

I sometimes get lost

in the mist

I need you to hold me tight

and guide me down

when the singing is done
