And Now

And Now

In the silent shadows

I hear you calling

Beneath a canopy of tangled branches

I have no need for a candle

There is nothing here to fear

For it is you passing

As the wind might blow

Like sleeplessness

My constant companion

The current of time and timelessness

Flow as one

We go together into flight

I look down

In the palm of my hand

A leaf

And now

The aching need
