Her step leaves glowing footprints on blades of grass
There’s glitter in her hair.
I’ve got scraped knees and a mending heart,
But I can bare it when she’s near.
She said "They can't get to the both of us.
There's too much happening in the universe.
I'll distract them while you run around the sun,
If you promise you’ll love me first.
I wrap her in a veil of time and patience
She learns to love the way that it feels.
There are depths in which I haven’t been
That reside within her still.
The clock will stand at ease ‘til Fall,
When she first breathes Pacific winds.
I’ll loop a dream around her heart
Soon life will begin again.
