Always You


Always You

A beautiful suffering

The bright moon is rising

Your eyes

Your eyes they are the ocean

In which I swim

And on which my soul

My soul

Is ever adrift

You sustain me

While gentle rain

Soaks the earth

While roses bloom

Day after day

Where the breeze sighs

And the grasses whisper

Though spring wounds

Are often deep

There follows the heat

And endless days

Of summer

There is always the fall

And though I know

That another winter will come

Although the stream

Empties into the sea

There is you

Always you

And you

You are all I’ve ever known
