( by Mary Annie )

I lost my way
when I took your hand.

Your hand weaved out a thousand roads
within mine
I did not know which to take.

One led to the hill beyond
the other down to the vales .

The seas seemed right in front of me
I walked right into it
the waves rushed in on me
i was blinded by its salty sting.

The stars they seemed
all coming down
i leapt out into their light
a thousand years did it seem
as day turned into night.

Your hands led me to deeper glades
forests i d never seeen
fruits i picked from the boughs
its taste i cannot define.
The way was full of grass and green
I really din’t want to leave.

But your hands
slipped away and fell
and I was left all lean!
I groped for the way back home
I seemed to be blind.

Having travelled the road thus far
with hands no longer to guide
I wandered along the dusty road
searching for a light.

The light in the corner distant
just waiting for me to arrive
