All The Days

by Matthew Patterson

I've followed you through lonely seasons 
 
 
Matching always your step of shadow
 
 
My hands passing through the places 
 
 
Where your hands passed 
 
 
In time with your moments 
 
 
That I lose myself in 
 
 
 
The silence of an ocean crossed at night
 
 
The depth and the longing 
 
 
And the things beyond them
 
 
Beyond time or desire, beyond distance or darkness
 
 
The star of home
 
 
 
Coming at last our promised day
 
 
Our arrival
 
 
Watching the sun burn off the morning fog 
 
 
Two figures alone on another shore
