The Stars Divide

my brother would you stop and sit down by my side
I know its late and we have yet some hours to ride
also true we’re married but not to each other now
sit with me, share a glass and tell me why and how

my brother turn around and look into my eyes
let’s drink us one more round than truly t’would be wise
for we may never see again this pathway through the wood
what would we wish that we had said while still we could

my brother let the clock grow silent for a while
grieving for all I did each day to make you smile
for everything I swallowed down as you set your life on fire
and stole the greatest gift my innocent desire

and promise me before you sleep
to never let the stars divide
your raging river spirit from your
your elemental eyes

my brother show me now the things you could not give
that led me down the road like water through a sieve
to seek a life of honesty and courage to reveal
my joys, my fears and one true heart that I could feel

my brother lend a hand for surely I must go
the bells upon the hill are waking with the crow
and even as the storm clouds furl their mastiffs in the sky
better companions all at last than you and I
