I said my goodbyes to the sun
my little one, so far away.
And how strange, how small we must become
yet as familiar as yesterday

The bluest iris that I'd ever seen
She vanished like a dream, sinking back
into the ground
Singing, "Maybe I'm ashamed
and maybe I wept real tears
but maybe she was hiding because she wanted to be found"
You wanted to be found!

Don't be afraid of him.
Be still.

    General Commentyou skipped a line. it's,
    "singing, 'maybe i'm ashamed
    and maybe i wept real tears'".
    but besides that, much love to mewithoutyou.

    General Comment"My little one" (see "My little girl") and "The bluest iris that I'd ever seen" (see "You're nice and blue") tie in with lines of "Nice and Blue".
