In every resurrection a tiny piece must die
to split in all directions. to keep the growth alive.
I'd kept a window hidden deep down inside my shame
a tiny sliver open, I'd sit and watch the frame.
Now it seems as though a Stork has
brought you another choice to make
and I'm glad this time you realized
that it's not your life to take.
Take your son down to the sea
and fill him up with stories of me
and how I worked to plant little seeds
but you refused to grow old with me.
The smallest crack you had here has shut,
the roof's come down and sealed it all up
and in amidst the rubble and ruin,
a tiny growth has started to bloom.
