It Grows

The flower

Turns its face

To the sun, it can’t help

But stare

The power

It compels

Endless ocean, earth swells

Receive

A sigh

Suspended

Wordlessly upended

We breathe

The eye

Unblinking

Hearts connection with thinking

Make way

And I know, that even through the pain, there is a seed of love

And I know, that tears are just like rain...

And my love -- it grows

My love -- it grows

The hour

Is so late

Eyes so tired they can’t stay

Awake

And nothing really matters

And loving takes a long time

And everything it shatters

And love is all you need

And I know, that even through the pain, there is a seed of love

And I know, that tears are just like rain...

And my love -- it grows

My love -- it grows
