from silence
was delivered
one word above the still
and I would listen
for an answer to my will
something more
worth coming back
would wait in patient grace
for proof
someone had heard me
in worlds beyond this place

I must be loved
I must exist
as someone else had dreamed
was offered me
a message of redemption
thought unseen
a light to glow into the night
will cling to every bough
til none were left
but those without the fear
to wonder how –

shall love endure
when prophets sink
beneath the weight of truth
I can’t recall
the reason I was come –

rocked against a song
already knew
