Wrapped in Silk

The One

I was the one who sat beneath the maple
Listening to the song of merry sparrows
While stuffed cheek squirrels
Told tales of where to hide their winter stash 

I was the one who dreamed beneath the willow
Listening to the gentle breeze
Whisper rhymes of reason
That those of sober thought could not perceive

I was the one who slept beneath the bridge
Listening to rippled screams echo tomorrow
But stories told in shadows yon the moonlight
Stay wrapped in silk beneath the polished stone

You were the one who told my saddened fable
Listening to the song of the nightingale
Reaching your hand for mine amongst the rubble
To pull me from the briars that bled my soul

You were the one who held me through the thunder
Listening to the rain drops call your name
Speaking rhymes in quiet desperation
To warm my tattered heart through winter’s chill

We are the ones who found the buried treasure
Listening to our hearts in perfect rhyme
While verses may be difficult to envision
Our music echoes soft through endless time
