there’s a soft place where we once met

everything else swirls like muddy water

but in that one spot

next door to gray stuff

all the childhood worlds were our own


walk in the soft grass with me

spread out your toes, bare the feet

breathe in the breeze

like a freeborn bird sing

stay in this place with me.


sun shines on your smile

in so many memories

stay in this place with me.
