Let me close my eyes for a moment,
For a fleeting breath or two.
Let me linger here
In a slice of setting sunlight -
In that place between
Awake and a-dream
Where you still breathe with me.
Let me see your smile for a moment,
For a fleeting beat or two,
And hear your wind-chime laughter
In that place where you are whole -
Where you're not a fading piece
Of my tangled history,
Sleeping in the ground
While your gardens grow without you,
While your church bells sing without you,
While we go on without you.
Just linger here with me.
