Together, we will float

Together, we will float.

As cottonwood dances through a warm summer breeze, as a fallen oak leaf rides the edge of a wave.

As the stars in the night guide the way when we’re lost.

Together, we float. Intertwined and free.


Together, we will love.

As the throes of the world pick away at our flesh, as the cries of intolerable pain heeds its call.

As the darkened path opens, and calls to us both.

Together we love, as us, and no more.


Together, we will fight.

As soldiers protecting their king from his foe, as houses divided, lay waste for their claim.

As mouths deeply submerged reach the surface and gasp.

Together we fight, and continue to grow.


Together, we will float.

As the head of an arrow cuts the great sky above, as mists in the morning submerge the mistakes.

As hands locked together bring warmth, and content.

Together we float, fully guided by love.
