the feather

i will love you till the sun goes
with all our memories of a thousand years
with days of joy and hours of tears
for life is a passion not a simple play
so like a story that winds its way
through our hearts and onto the page

i will carry you like a river to the sea
you are the ocean deep inside of me
i care for you like an old ancient tree
you are the feather falling to me

now i could live alone in a cave
wishing all my sorrow would go away
still the night would be heavy
and iÕd miss the light of day
so i will walk my path
and though sometimes i will tire
if i see injustice i will set it on fire
tempered by compassion and my honest desire
to see the baby and the elder smile
to see the forest for a million miles
to see you well and happy in your life

i will carry you like a river to the sea
you are the ocean deep inside of me
i care for you like an old aged tree
you are the feather given to me

you are the baby smiling at me
you are the elder teaching me
you are the forest protecting me
you are the feather falling to me
falling falling falling falling falling
