So, we'll take our time as days go by
We will treasure what we never can reclaim
And, from far away, a Mother's grace
Comes the sound of someone calling
Now, a boy with deep brown eyes, in a lonely place
But, he tells you that he's happy

So, we'll face the hours, embrace the years
Making lists and drawing marks upon our walls
And, closer still, a Father's face
Neither one will be forgotten
Just like a dog, in the curl of sleep, forever blessed
I wish you everything you wanted


Is there something that you need from me?
Is there something I should say?
I think you always get the best of me
All the rest I'd throw away
I think it's always been that way

So, we'll chase the hands in a backwards race
I remember how I longed for you to stay
As the dawn came in, I fell asleep
Intoxicated and so beautifully beguiled
Illuminated, as the Springtime fell
After Winter seemed forever

So, we'll watch the Sun, we'll see it shine
In the light we'll watch it grow, our greatest hope
Most precious one, and we'll let go
But, still hold on just like a Brother
And, if I had to tell the truth, the best I'd do
Is in the end I know the water always wins


So, I see us still just as we were
I read "Stones of Summer" through the fleeting light
Into the Fall, the quiet still
And, if I promised you a poem I'd write it down
In the early hours, just like I do
And, wine and letters on your birthday
