I knew you were gone Before any other Silent you slipped out the door I knew in my bones It would be wrong to stop you I couldn’t keep you anymore
You were a surprise Unlike any other A gift from the stars and the moon I fell to my knees Again and again overcome overwhelmed over you
I breathed I breathed I opened up my hands I tried my best to soften to the fear Oh please oh please, no sparrow at the window Still come the night you left us here
Grief is a hawk Flying over in circles Keeping her eyes on the ground Swift as an arrow She’s pinned to my breast She rises, I am empty now
So breathe, oh breathe Just open up your hands There’s nothing left to hold now but the air In dreamless sleep Oh sparrow at the window still come the night come find me there
