Someday I’ll look back and be astounded
Someday I’ll reminisce and be amazed
at all the ways my life has changed;
tears shed for deaths we all regret —
friendships, friends, desires… dead.
Someday I’ll wonder just what happened
Where all the sunlit years have gone
My heartbeat then will go to sleep
my words will breathe no more.
I long for absolution from the starrer of the skies
the one who galaxied creation
and all the colors in your eyes.
Let my skin cease to glow
the day my colors fade.
and otherwise my spirit grow
in love and mercy night and day.
