lyrics

Utter once her name.
She came to us on sunshine’s breath.
Her smile was the dawn,
Her hair, a roadmap to the face,
On which my love was drawn.

Utter once her name.
She melted mountains into rivers
Neither wide nor lasting deep.
Into fertile floods sank the fossils
Of secrets we would keep.

Utter once her name.
Steady as a sundial,
Her dreams remained the same.
A storm contained in each dark eye
Made life for us a game.
And now, when life needs something more,
I utter, once, her name.
