Let me be aware of the treasure you are
Let me learn from you,
Before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare & perfect tomorrow,
Let me hold you while I may,
For it will not always be so.
One day I shall dig my fingers into the earth,
Or bury my face in my pillow,
Or stretch myself taut,
Or raise my hands to the sky,
And want more than all the world : Your Return.
