I penned a thousand lullabies 'bout you
Yet your lashes closed, tender
To the ends of those songs ...
You whispered sacred secrets to my name
Tied bright bows of dalliance
To the ends of each breath ...
Deep in your eyes my wand'ring soul resides
For I followed them homeward
To the ends of the earth.
