In the Time We Have

sail every ocean, shore to shore
in the time we long for
lie awhile on this raft
in the time we have

shake the earth down to its core
in the time we long for
feel the air and walk the path
in the time we have

needn't measure, needn't guess
there's what we want, and what is less
til every breath slips out of you
feeling em all's all you can do

read all the novels, long and short
in the time we long for
savor some sweet paragraphs
in the time we have

dance every dance, win every war
in the time we long for
hold me closely, cry and laugh
in the time we have

every sky or every cell
just breath that's breathed, and breath that's held
no treasure chest, no shooting star
just what we hold, and where we are

life forever, ever more
in the time we long for
live right now, love, not so bad
in the time we have

sydney and san salvador
in the time we long for
sherman st and huron ave
in the time we have
