lyrics

Whatever we're left with
can only be enough,
if in the measure of things
nothing is cast off,
discarded on the wayside
in the strides that keep us clear
beyond the smoke and grief
into a world of shocked birth
opening eyes upon a sudden light.
And to whirl then in a breath
to see all that we have done,
where the tombs on the trails
lie sealed like jewelled memories
in the dusk of a good life's end,
and not one footprint beckons
upon the soft snow ahead,
but feel the sweet wind caress.
They will take from us
all that we cradle in our arms
and the burden yielded
will make feathers of my hands,
and the voices drifting down
are all that we're left with
and shall forever be enough

Feel the sweet wind caress
