One Million Hearts


One million hearts
stretching across endless space
as above, so below and far beyond
life after lifetime without a trace.
Worlds crowded into atoms
myriads of secrets still veiled to the eye
a stone whispers, suns brighter behind a flame
colours bleeding, running into light.

Drown us in your oceans
draw us to your shores
take us from this strident air
one million hearts will have their wait no more.

One million voices
making silent of our words
moving closer to the call
where sounds of a distant song are heard.
Bearing the longest winters
architects of our every wall
dawns melting into timeless seasons
a cast of shadows now fade and fall.

Temper us in your stormy seas
turn us in your tides
save us from returning again
one million voices and all is alive.
