I Yearn Your Nearness
You're the fierce flame that burns in my heart,
to keep me going, know that I (was) am
the harmony that loved you from the start.
I weep and mourn for the warm human lamb;
tremble from the deep fearful hollow dam.
None listen to my mournful lullaby.
You laid a breath kiss, died a lover's sigh
under heaven's steps in the endless night.
Shill I taunt the gossamer wings and die?
For I yearn your nearness, your touch, the sky.
