If Love Should Seek Me

Nancy

 

If  love should seek me

Here

So deep within the earth

Offer me

A life I never dared to dream

Would I accept her gift

Or

Hide my hands

Pretend

Indifference

 

If love brought her song

Here

Deep into the earth

Would I try the notes

Or

Pose

Mute

Determined in my silence

 

If love sought me

Here

So deep in rock and earth

Like Aprilís rainy fingers

Seek the sleepy seed

 Foretell sunís invitation

Would I bury my soul

Beyond her reach

Shun 

Her touch

The chance to live

 

If love pursued me

With dreams and songs

And hope

 Past the forests of my fear

Through twisting tunnels

Caverns undiscovered

 

Never giving up

Until

She found me

 

Here

Deep

Within the earth

 

 I might

I would surrender then

 

Love

Come for me
