If I could carry you on my back
To the next place, a fortress of peace, I would.
A million memories like threads
Of alabaster spiderwebs will still exist
If I could absorb your pain and any sadness
In the sponge of my soul, I would
A movie of what we were and will always be,
Beautiful and righteous, will play on
If I could rock you in a cradle of my arms
To a sweet, unending sleep, I would
Pieces of you are intertwined in all of us,
Filling the darkness of life’s lattice with good
And to carry you on in all that is done, I will. We will.
