a long fall

I’ll be you respite
I’ll be your shelter
from the winter storm
 
I’ll be your portion
and I’ll be your millstone
when the summer comes
 
so much pain
between these walls
to no reason to stall
 
good by one, good bye all
it’s been a short time
for such a long fall
 
I’ll be your water
to drown your fears
and bathe in moon light
 
and I’ll bathe with you
in the silk strands starlight
in the tapestry of night
