IMG_5625 Paper Boats~


 A piece of you is still in me
Still here and it can't be lost
The peace of you is still in me
Still here still with you gone

When loneliness swamped me
Caught out in a paper boat
Still here, your peace bailed with me
That piece we could not drown

When fortune's hunt yields pyrite veins 
When frost collides with hope
It's your peace that keeps me sane
Still here still with you gone

I've been exiled from paradise
Soul's pockets emptied of all that shines
But there's a well worn path to where peace lies
I'm waiting there for you

A piece of you is still in me
I'll wait there for you

  10. This is wonderful. I particularly like the lines:

    When fortune's hunt yields pyrite veins
    When frost collides with hope

  11. There a few good lines such as "When loneliness swamped me / Caught out in a paper boat" and the lines Other Mary quoted as well, but I don't know if L3 and L4 in S1 are really necessary.
