Forgive me, for only tonight I realize it.
The fool I have been.
Now, I want to listen, and so deeply
That with your every breath
Words are noise.
Let me listen.
I want you to lean into me, not saying anything,
But trembling, feel me tremble.
Whisper. Tell me what moves you.
I want to know what moves you.
More than ever opening my eyes
Again, I want to know.
What moves you.
I said these things to you
As the night itself turned us inside out.
We looked at the river in the moonlight.
And a log went by, floating.
On it, a duck stood.
It was when we fell back on the grass
Laughing, I knew. You would never
Never be gone, were a cyclone to take you
Nor I, from you.
And we trembled in the grass together,
Until we shivered.
