lyrics

shall i compare you to some summer sonnet;
sweetly sung or softly spoke…
more like the mystery of a near-off comet,
beautifully burning with the fires of hope.

oh no, please don’t go…
i’ll eat you up, i love you so!

were i the wind, winding where i wanted,
you’d hear my song upon the breeze…
though on this road, lonesome and daunted,
i know that mercy leads in front of me!

oh no, please don’t go…
i’ll eat you up, i love you so!

saying goodbye thaws like snow
as the hurting slowly
seeps and grows. weeping prose
woefully uncomposed… then,
lifting my chin up, remembering the light,
it’s a blessing i’ve a reason to cry!
you’re a blessing and it’s making me cry…

oh no, please don’t go…
i’ll eat you up, i love you so!

about

pilgrims, we Seattle, Washington

each of us is prone to wander while we are here abroad. and
whatever which way we wonder (be it all for gain or blunder),
still holes in hearts point, pining after all we can’t quite know.
onwards! upwards! ever fonder we grow! never dimmer
but refining all our brilliance, chasing that Light.

and so we sing. songs for hope; for joy.
for all of us our wayward, journeying on.
going home.
