Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Our hearts change like the seasons
Bliss has blossomed here
This willow bends so perfectly
Come the strong and building breeze
But it blows nothing clear
Sunlight gleaming the fertility
Radiating, permeating
Stunningly illuminating
Everlasting light

How much closer can the sky get
If we've grown all this way
Where do we go from full bloom
Only to an autumn day

Let the red seep in
Feel our stems release
Flora shriveling to frailty
Losing grip, I'm clinging on
Thinking that I've done you wrong
As I watch you fall away from me

Sleep onto your bed of leaves
My winds keep you awake
But I know this gathered cold between us
Signals your resting fate
Blowing harder, gripping tighter
Colliding with destiny
Weight of your pain growing lighter
Acceptance comes to me
As you pass on

Something beautiful in the autumn death
So graceful, meant to be
I bid you release from our branch
My kiss precedes your final breath


Color palette is bleached
Monotony has reached
The faded portrait of this tree
Its skeleton encased in ice
Looming over your frozen grave
Lying so close to hidden roots
A solitary breath escapes
Did I bury you alive?
If this is what's meant to be
Why does it feel like I'm dying inside?

Tears saturate this ground we've made

And then I see a flower grow
A new life dawns
A new life dawns
New beauty has cracked the snow
A phoenix rose
A phoenix rose
Pedals blazing gloriously
And now I see
Now I see
What this love has done for me
Now I see!
