Here I Lie


Breath anew
Walking through pastures of the new beginning
Guided by the shepherds of the morning star
Learning to skip and run and play in the pastures
Guided by the shepherds of the morning star

Breath anew
More to explore just beyond the pastures
Advised by the shepherds of the morning star
Faces and fun and freedom just beyond the pastures
Advised by the shepherds of the morning star

Breath anew
Influenced by the faces, fun, and freedom
Distant from the shepherds of the morning star
Guided to the barren basin by those faces
Distant from the shepherds of the morning star

Breath collapses
Left to stay out and rot in the basin
Mourned by the shepherds of the morning star
And here I lie
Welcomed by the shepherds of the evening star
