A Rock For Us


And across the abyss of questions and terrors
I would reach
I would steal you, lover
I would stand with you on rock

Do you recall, my lover, in happier days--
when we stood in the gushing sun
on a mountainous stone?

And watched the birds panic
to escape the waves

Do you remember the way my eyes looked
bathed in the joy of baby love?

I remember yours

And I remember the sense of assurance's hole
left in its absence
So big that it ate up the cotton in the sky
and the life beneath our feet
And everything

We are not on a rock now

I believe I have found one for standing
but you are not here

my arms won't stretch across the great abyss
I only can sing
And hope that you know me by my song
