There Alone Go I

To have come among you rock and sea
Where the nearness of you quiets me
Windblown accolades, bearing down the day
For my soul to keep

Evergreen hold court with fierce and few
Sounding organ pipes, a solemn fugue
Hold me in the sway, Keeping words away

I’m letting go (Bend your branches over me)
I’m letting go (All this light surrounding me)
Still in the moment, mile after mile,
There Alone Go I

Leaf and Piper follow gusty dreams
Once remembered, vanish aimlessly
Running through the maze
Time just marks a day

I’m letting go (Bend your branches over me
I’m letting go (All this light surrounding me)
Still in the moment, mile after mile
There Alone Go I

Hollow out my heart
Belly to the north
Feeling like a thousand moments fighting to be born

I’m so tired, I can’t see randomly
Where the road begins and ends with me
Footsteps in the sand
Here is where I am
For my soul to keep

Peter’s Counterpoint

1st VERSE:
The woodwinds are playing a near perfect chorus
Of that which will be and that which haunts me now and ever more
I find it amazing that suddenly
all of the mem’ries I saved are here
I saved them for this one day

2nd VERSE:
There’s a lady who’s traveled this road
with a brown bag of near misses
The kind that shape a heart, that shape a heart
She arrived on a Saturday calling a name no one will recall
Forgotten through time and age
