I wanted a place
to rest my soul,
to stand on,
So weary was I
of walking
miles and miles
under water.

And maybe
I fell in love
too soon…
Something about you
and how you
soothed my soul
in a thousand ways…
I am to blame.
Oh, my wild little heart.

I wore your words
like a string of pearls
day and night.

Sunset left
and I’m writing your name
on a black ash sky.
So empty
this place without you.

I’ll gather up the memories
and lay them to rest
in a field laden
with stardust.
Rain to soothe them
day by day.
And I’ll
sing over them,
little pieces
of my heart.
