I have watched you grow.
I have known the shadows, known your light.
Known the whispers of your morning,
Known the depths of your delight.
And I have watched you wander,
In painted fields have watched you stay…
Unto the edges of horizon,
Paused for you to pass my way.
I have known your steps before you’ve taken,
Laid the paths for you to dance,
Stayed the amber glows of evening,
Just for you to cast a glance.
I have waited in your silence,
And have urged you into sound.
I, the guardian of your music,
With each step,
Each sigh to ground.
