Saturday Evening Look Up

I searched heaven and hell

For your heart

Stepped along sandy beaches

Peered into the waves and foam

Gazed into fading sun and firelight

Listened for the beat of you

When tides came in

Heard your song upon the gentle breeze

Maybe I am flying now

Following this trail

Of clouds

Maybe I am standing still

Losing all my petals

About to go to seed

While the world turns carelessly

The rain pours down senselessly

While your song wavers among stars and dirt

Unable or unwilling

To come home

I am unable or unwilling

To come home

All that remains is the search

For heart and home

And a song that changes

But never ends

The Cosmic Beat

In the beat of my heart

The rhythm of you sounded

My eyes had not seen your face then

What grew there in the amongst the stars

Shimmering in space

Vast and concientious

I began to tell our story

Born aloft on dreams

Gazing into firelight

Soundings plucked from strings

Time unraveled wholly

Meaning grew from words

In a garden planted seedlings

Were notes in letters written

By the love bug bitten

The song flew from my spirit

To meet you there beyond

Listen, darling, to the music

Hear me in the harmony

I am the song in you

You are the song in me

Together we will play this hand

Dealt eternally
