life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

always return

 

 


When I was the stream, when I was the

forest, when I was still the field,

when I was every hoof, foot,

fin and wing, when I 

was the sky

itself,


no one ever asked me did I have a purpose, no one ever

wondered was there anything I might need,

for there was nothing

I could not

love.


It was when I left all we once were that 

the agony began, the fear and questions came,

and I wept, I wept. And tears

I had never known

before. 


So I returned to the river, I returned to 

the mountains. I asked for their hand in marriage again,

I begged—I begged to wed every object

and creature, 


and when they accepted,

God was ever present in my arms.

And He did not say,

“Where have you

been?” 


For then I knew my soul – every soul- has always held

Him.
