I, walking in skies of truest blue,
found you walking down sandy beaches,
ball in your hand ready to be thrown,
a smile spread wide across your face
And I, weeping from the past, found you,
ready to make me laugh,
ready to hold my hand,
ready to keep me safe from now
until all the tomorrows are over.
The rains that fell have ceased,
I found all the answers
to all of the daily questions
in your eyes,
and all hopes in your fine strong hands.

You looked at me with an absolute forgiveness
and a longing to help me, teach me
and to learn from me
and we saw clearly
and laughed at the coming and going
of the seasons and the geese.
Now we are and will ever be one
in the sun, in the sand, by the sea.
