Day 35
12:20 am – 1:10 am


There was a time when it was fine
That you were everywhere
You were not to be captured by
Commitments and carving plans
And you tried so hard to be still
You were anywhere but here

We were proof fire and water
Were just a matter of time
We were proof water and fire
Were a force to reckon with
We were proof fire and water
Were never to be envied

We are at the cusp of arrest
And a chance to fly blindly
Do you remember when we could
Never imagine this peace
Let it blossom to fruition
Come my friend we are there now
