The moon is lighting the sea once more,

A silver shimmer upon the shore,

My mind is soaring in to the stars,

But my feet are rooted to the floor,


The birds sing up in the trees,

A peaceful carpet of fallen leaves,

I settle myself and close my eyes,

And lay beneath the open skies,


But I remember the cold sleet falling,

Not as it melts to the spring,

Recalling the warmth turn to ice,

Songs fade as birds cease to sing,


The sun won’t rise as I look on alone,

As I battle myself through the gale,

Feel it drench each vessel and bone,

And welcome the bullets of hail.
