I would like to crawl to times past with you.
To all times before today.
Happy, Sad, Easy, even things we would rather forget.
I would crawl for all these things.
Miles, Hours, Weeks on hands and knees.
Till my soul lay bare.
For the chance to live all these things to do so would be worth all the time left.
I would like to Crawl to future times.
To times how I would like to see them.
Future smiles, touches, laughs.
Future tears, future years.
Yes I would crawl, Til bones laid bare and my lifes river nourishes the very
ground which grinds me down.
To crawl forward to defy all the worlds logic is absurd.
Yes crawl forward I would for all their logic is theory and what I know is true.
So crawl forward is what I must do.
To crawl to you today would be the last of these tasks.
The fields are wide and rivers deep.
Mountains high from peak to peak.
For this chance I would prevail.
To lay at your feet and the eyes of the world.
Would you leave me there lay?
Or assist me in your own loving way?
Would you greet me with a snear and a hiss.
Or lay my head on your chest and greet me with a kiss.
IN your sunlight is where I would stay.
Letting it warm all that is exposed By the travels undertaken.
My body, my mind, and my soul.
And if it's your shadow as you walk away.
Glimpse back as all goes grey.
Yes today I would like to crawl
