Ruby

The Daylight

Anchored down by this one moment

Released to the wind

On butterfly backs

Encapsulated in your eyes

By a single shimmering tear

Dancing down the cliff of your cheek

Falling in rhythm with your soul

Your mother would be proud

Your mother would be proud

Your mother would want you to smile

 

The Nighttime

Creeping, skulking into the clouds

Surrounding the car

Whispering words of malice

From brother to sister this moment

Encapsulated in your eyes

By a single shimmering tear

Released into the abyss of darkness

Taking on a life, a channel of energy

Your sadness does not define you

Your sadness does not define you

Your sadness will one day begin to fade

 

And I will be here

When you awaken, my love

And your pills no longer haunt you

Your heart no longer fears

I will be here

With your fallen tears
