Eyes open to woes

The cawing of kids like ghosts

Creeps over me

The fingers through hair

The trickle of tiny tears

The cracks in our speech



And there in your room

She changes your life with tubes

And gargles and glee

In front of these eyes

Of tired and aching hearts

Where she could have been



In the sea tides hold me

On the air wings fold around me



A lion a lamb

A song that brings breathing back

To colourless lips

You need to be red

And belong to a mouth that moves

And touches your head

Which covers your brain

Which translates the sounds he make

To words that you keep

Wrote down in verse

Under the place you sleep lightly

Where he used to be



(Chorus)



There in your womb

There is a child that blooms into a tree

A stretch of an arm

Your voice keeps me safe from harm

A girl in the sea

I watched as she swam further away from land

Onto the breeze

There on the sand an imprint of someone’s hand

Mine fits perfectly
