Hour 4

Surrender

From a century of mistakes that I could choose to make
I chose what put the laws of love at stake

I am fire, he, the sumptuous calling sky
I am earthbound, he, heavenly high
In passion irrevocable, I betray my creation
Where, my binding tradition, do I find my aspiration?

From a century of mistakes that I could choose to make
I chose what put the laws of love at stake

I am the soul of his love, he utterly unaware
I am those desires inconsolable, bounds beware
In the ringing of the wind and the caress of the rain
How long creation, must my heart you detain?

From a century of mistakes that I could choose to make
I chose what put the laws of love at stake

I am a distant twinkle, he a wonder blinding
I am a drizzle bashful, he a deluge in hiding
In nights of wonder wandering the unholy
Nature, why may I not make him mine solely?

From a century of mistakes I could choose to make
I chose what put the laws of love at stake

I am evident, existing, he, unnoticed a thought
I am burning, sinking, he, the refuge sought
In the forever bubbling, singing stream
O life cruel, why is he only a dream?

Tradition, creation, nature and life, may all you take
I gather apologies but no regret for my mistake
For I willfully surrender to each error I make
And put all laws of love at stake
