Song of the Earth

I see you there...
so brave
so strong in the dark.
Fighting things you dont know.
And I shouldnt stare,
nor save
nor send a spark.
But I cannot let you go.

In the grand melody,
you are so small,
so afraid of the rain.
And I, just as afraid...
Can I bring you to me,
answer your call,
end your pain?

For all the world ends...
nothing lasts forever,
our love will die a mortal.
For death itself deepens,
thunder far darker than weather.
It holds sway your soul,
and leaves my optimism numb.

Perhaps my fearful distance...
though just
doesnt translate to love...
Should my heart turn your way?
While truth and consequence,
deception and distrust,
rage below and rise above?
Might I be in love with you,
a midst the storm come what may?

How desperately I'll hope to find,
that the world will move for love.
That the vastness of space isn't cold.
that its enough to hold you,
destiny changed, story untold.


  1. Hard to think of any world bit enough to hold changelessness, but still we long for it. Thanks. K. Manicddaily

  7. I really like it especially the last stanza. :)

  8. this is simply beautiful so many lines that speak to me directly...the fear of the unknown conquering space and fall into the arms of love..
