last i remember
a red sky was falling –
blue had run out
on the day
dreams were allowing
access for mercy –
love had come home
with reason
to stay
like there was never another
we thought about leaving
took down the curtains
and buried the bed
out past the pasture
jesus was witness
to a feeling we dared
wasn’t dead
heaven made plans
to sleep in for breakfast
when i found you there
at the edge of the woods
looking for signs
to stay
to remember
wanting for love
in arms
