Beneath Your Bright Thoughts

If I were the lonely pond on a still day
and you the rock
that fate suddenly tossed my way
Ripple after ripple
 there would always be
I’d never allow you to sink
So please forever have that effect on me?

If I were a puddle on a relentless, rainy day
You’d be a child’s rainboots
Deliberately splashing all of my blues away
But when the sun comes out
I wonder, will you forget about me?
Or will you guide me to a river?
Will you follow me to the sea?

And if I join the ocean and you become the bird
I’ll be in constant motion
Rising with your song… yes, each and every word
just beneath your bright thoughts
While the air kisses your wings
Forever trying to chase your breeze
Making waves to reach
The highest branches of your trees

I suppose no matter what form
of living we choose
we’ll have a bond
that we will never lose
