Come watch the sunset with me

stay awhile and tell me about your life

for I know the sun did not burn gently

and does not bow and sink quietly in the brine

It knows the toil was worthy

and praises the stars as they take their turn to shine.

We came into this world upside down

we tasted bitter boons and sweet defeat,

and ventured in the dark and pondered the divine

and dabbed the water on my baby’s crown

I know

one day I will stand beneath the angels’ wing

when I finally feel the earth beneath my feet,

when all your troubles are reduced to one

and you can finally lift your voice and sing

‘Carry on my wayward son...’
