Lamb of mine.
Once I stepped into your time.
Never before had I curbed my power
Paid homage to a ruthless hour.
Beneath the burden of your yesterdays
And the looming knowledge of my own tomorrow,
I wept, I laughed and I shared your sorrow.
You cringe with ending, each night a mystery.
Does life await with next sun’s warmth?
I once inhaled the fog of death.
But of my own, breathed out life-breath.
In my plan of beginnings, life’s fruit a bounty
I first exhaled life’s breath.
I watched the lungs I gave to you
Take it in! I smiled
All true and new.
Take it in and begin
With nothing to prove.
