Fission

Written by: David Smalling

You were gone before we drift away 
Desire calls still strong 
Badgered you before the bleak of day 
You could'nt love me long 
O study the moorings in the bay 
A wind barely strong 
Inch by inch their tides ebbing away 
Small waves play a sad song 
Now the mighty tides with blasting spray 
'Gainst the heart's rock breaks 
The true lover's bereft, far away, 
Only stands and shake 
I believed you more than Jacob's dreams 
Of ladders that throngs 
With angels merging in their bright streams 
Joy of all my songs 
You were gone before you slipped away 
Love with love alone can stay.
