i can see
the shadow of you
in her eyes

and as
she grows
among us

i know
she won't come
between us

the love that made her
so strong

is the love
that'll be there

long after
we're gone

she's the echo
of our song

age old

what did you think
we needed to bring

on our trip to forever?

a smart hat
to ward off the rain

a nice coat
to keep away the chills

your parakeet
who you just taught
to sing
the song of freedom
that we hum

oh so far away
from what
we're used to be

but oh so close
to the sun

take me anywhere
anywhere but here

words are too dear
to explain...

but anywhere there's rain

to tell your troubles to

no matter how big
no matter how small

to give
and take with

to give all you have
to take and take again

that answers the call
within you

the screaming
inside of you
that no one else
can hear

that unexpected

who scares and
all in one breath

like a sudden storm
that rages
into the night

and leaves
a cool morning behind
