lyrics

We are all traveling monks in a vast desert.
Cast out at sand sea, lost in wonder.
Though it’s lonely and barren,
we sometimes reach an oasis
where we stay or set off for new places.

We cherish the moments our paths cross,
because we’ve been walking for so long.
Even though we’ve all been lost
we forget all that’s wrong
and dance under sky fire.
Then we find after a night of love, laughter, and life-
the sunrise steals us back to our journey
like breaths taken in the haste and hurry
of our minds forging experience into memory.

With each new face, in every kindness and grace-
A new idea has taken residence in your heart and mind-
Where they live forever in your words and in your eyes
and cast love into the empty
till their fear and pain subside.
Filling other’s cups, soon you’ll find-
You are the oasis, the Promised Land
in this desert of mine.

Take care, love. Though the sand atop the hourglass thins,
Know time spent was time taken.

With lips cracked and split,
We sit searching skies
For respite.
What Truth is this?
Such brightness.
