If I Were Earth


Each tear that fell

from the crushed

moon of your face,

stabbed me,

broke and split

into a thousand pains.

But I held out my arms,

and not one did I miss,

no, not one pain.

And if I don’t let

you soak into me

and bring me up,

if I don’t let you seep

deep into me

and teach me,

then you can cry in

the morning to the sun,

and tell him to rise up

and burn me away.

And if I don’t let

you soak into me

and bring me up,

if I don’t let you

into my heart

so that I can

genuinely share

your pain,

tell the morning sun

to rise up

and burn me

away.

Peace on this Memorial Day weekend,
