The way I use my tongue
Then should I cut it out?
If my ears were to hear
What my eyes say about
The things that I would do
For You
Could let me in your mind
Share the insanity
And in our perfect world
Of all that cannot be
We hope that it is true
Even though we can see
Where we are headed to
On our way
We will play
And close our eyes

We will live in ourselves
Surrounded yet alone
Take my hand I'll take yours
And fall to the unknown
The wind ever blowing
Knowing
Exactly where we're bound
If we'd just think to care
Heedless in the journey
To stop and find out where
We will end up going
The truth was always there
Ready for the showing
On our way
We will play
And close our eyes
Soon one day

I'm glad this one was found back in the pack and brought back up..it's very good! You know, I'm going to have to take a whole day and dedicate it to searching back there!!!! (Now, you know....that's dedication!)

Walt, I don't know if you'll like this or not, but...I could almost sing this. I know some poets don't like to hear that..but.....it's true.
