Wake Child

from by Solström



last night
you walked through my memory,
you presence still haunting me,
as you carried through the years.

the thought
was just like the photograph,
sent to remind me,
as you spoke without a sound.

'Wake child'
walk on from what happened to you,
ill bet, regret
is bound to tear you in two

pierced through the wing and
as the cruel fate of the cactus wren longing to fly.

'Wake child'
walk on from what happened to you
don't let regret
come in and tear you in two
and now its
time to lay our burdens in the tides

'her comes the morning light'

this ones for all the words you left unspoken
as the shoe box of love was fated to be open
we would all float steady as she walked on by.

wake child, her comes the morning light.
