They marched, all doomed,
toward the distant cliff
writing their lives
with footprints in the dust
too soon they're gone
swept off within a blink
shall we pretend
it's not the same with us?

The spinning earth
waits, hungry for our flesh
we walk along
toward an earthy maw
while stars look on
indifferent to our plight
its gravity
binds spirits to the Law

And yet I find
such simple joy in this:
that looming Death
can't make contentment bow
our naked love
will shield us from fear
for I'm alive
inside your love right now
