MOVING DAY

All of your things are packed up and piled in the hall
This is your life with a cat perched on top of it all
7 boxes and a ticket that waves in your hand
This chapter’ s ending in the book made of sand, but

All the stars that filled your eyes
When you could not fall to sleep
All the hours scattered light
That danced across
Your dreaming body
Nothing ever loved, dies

I know it’s hard and I wish I could bring you some peace
But the words won’t come and I feel your hand slow release
1000 mornings floating in your big brass bed
This song is ending the birds with their music have fled

All the stars....

I know some believe that this world will always turn
And time is a fire and love left untended will burn, but


All the stars...
