mine in the sky

had i the cloth of heaven in my hands,
i'd weave your likeness between the silver and gold.

i could stare up at you each night
and you'd stay with the morning light.

or maybe i'd drag the skies down among us;
you could walk across the stars to reach my door.

i wouldn't have to close my eyes to dream,
you wouldn't have to forsake me.

let us lie in the clouds and feel the heavens;
it's under my back, between my legs.

if we sit with the stars, we'll be above time
and i'll have more than forever to learn you.

i know you didn't want to leave me behind;
would you be mine if i warmed you with the sun?
