Earth Love

I am the soil beneath your feet
The mother who gives you food to eat
All night I turn slowly so you may rest
But lately, my friend, I'm not feeling my best

My breath is the wind, my tears, the rain
The oceans and streams, my blood and veins

The trees and the grass are my hair-now receding
The quakes are my stomach, churning and beating

I have chemicals stuck to my rocky bones
The star friends say you have abandoned me alone

For this I can't imagine, why?
We live together in the sky

I remember the history you seek to discover
Buy lately, I feel we are out of touch with one another

The fact is, my friend, I can't do this alone
I am tired, ill, and too far gone

Help me, my friend, we are made of each other

The sun knows we can overcome this together
