Until You Come Back Home
© 2012 Hans Bilger

your beauty bold surrounds me
it swaddles me with sky
but the water cold, it drowns me
no one can know just how to die

I’ll wait for you tomorrow
forget that you’re not down the hall
what a crafty thing is sorrow
that comes right after the fall

but oh my darling
who knows where you’ve gone to roam?
I don’t know how to start again
until you come back home

but as I sink beneath the surface
I see a different sort of light
the world, it isn’t flat I guess
it circles just beneath our sight

cause though you left me long ago
I only lost what I could see
your bones became the ebb and flow
and your smile grew into me

so oh my darling
go wherever you may roam
I’ll start from where I began
cause you never left your home
