  • 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 Writer/s: Alison Sudol, Chris Hyson
