Wilderness Song

(Dedicated to Samuel Moore, 5/26/10)

The roads may overgrow with ivy,
Weeds push up through unkept concrete,
Thistles wind and bind our heartstrings,
Just know, I love you wildly

When lions roar beneath our breastbones
And wildebeests roam, no want for home,
Claws will clash to self-preserve
Still know, I love you wildly

When waters dry and winds would parch us
When storms arise and threat to drown us
When our own hearts would but deceive us
Do trust, I love you wildly

As years trod on through desert wasteland
Feet, mind, and heart reach dull complacence
When wounded sleep would overtake us
Recall, I love you wildly
