Lay me down

Lay me down now
and put me to bed
in layered soil
outside your window
let me awake
and see you in spring
winter is too harsh to take
put me in the ground
and cover my eyes
sing to me
a lullaby

say to me words untrue
and put me to bed
let me awake
brand new
with eyes that not know what it see
in the summer sun
and winters dawn
pray I awake in spring
when all things live anew
and memories die


Saying nothing new is sometimes perspective
or perhaps truth. Whose to say which is what?

xoxo, Privy lil me..
