The New Song

I know that song you're singing
I've heard it since conception, in time with mother's heart beat
When I learned to smile, it was because I heard my name in the lyrics
and running with all I had or laughing with my sister
was the harmony building, building and building to burst through
my eyes and mouth in counterpoint of my own
the evening lights of the city, the leaves and now snow under foot
compel me to listen for your voice; your song is prophesying;
siren without manipulation but just as seductive; I cannot deny you;
I cannot refuse ou because I'm singing now, a new song, lyrics like
streams of living water; a duet symphony and the swell is coming.
