The Way Life Moves

The way life moves inside you
As you sleep
The way I drift inside the shining Deep
Dark waters that hold you
Lunar Daughters who enfold you

The way you seem to vanish
As I draw near
The quiet ways you reappear, my dear
Companion of my Eternal Nights
Widening Canyon of my Last Rites

And when daylight
Holds the Heart captive
Tears cannot be shed
Give us this day our daily bread
And weave and wed
The Living and the Dead

The way silence gathers
In your wake
The hidden ways you
Forever remake
Dark waters that hold you
Lunar Daughters that enfold you

And when daylight
Holds the Soul ransom
Words cannot be said
Give us this day our daily bread
And weave and wed
The Living and the Dead
