Baby Sun rose with the day
And thought, “I must go out to play!”
Up the hills and over a stream
Baby Sun let his joy beam.
Just a little ball of energy
He ran, skipped, and chased a bee.
He tasted the wind as if a sweet
As he danced happily in the heat
Then Baby Sun climbed a pine
Got to the top and let his pride shine.
He enriched the flowers to make them grow.
In the river he dipped his toe.
Baby Sun noticed it was getting late
But he thought, “Oh sleep can wait!”
At the end of the day he was getting slow.
His shine was now only a glow.
Mother Earth took him in her arms, hugged him tight.
Now you could barely see his light.
After she dressed him all in white, Mother Earth put him in his crib and
It got dark and in the night crept.
And tucked in his crib of stars, Baby Sun slept.
As the stars rocked him in a gentle way,
Baby Sun waited and dreamed of a new day.
Tiny bubbles inside your soul
Bringing new thoughts to the surface
Thoughts you hadn’t dared to think
‘Til those fatal words were whispered
Contrary to your thoughts
They brought new life
But the new flora is poisonous
You don’t realize this till it’s too late
‘Til you do something stupid
And the truth comes out.
These words were small lies
Dressed up as sheep
You had no reason not to doubt them,
Other than your own instincts.
We deny our link to the animals
So we forget that instincts can save you
Save your heart from dying
From unwittingly committing suicide
By taking the small pill
The pill called hope…
Why do I torture myself?
Crucify myself on your cross
Why do I pretend?
Not to feel the hurt
The need to hold you
To melt away your fears
And heal all your wounds
But I can’t have you
And you don’t need me
Yet this hunger is with me
And I have grown accustomed
Accustom to you talking of your other loves
The ones I know you’d rather have…
Than your shield
The one that would do anything for you
Sacrifice everything for you
Only if you would smile for a second
The hope of this smile keeps me fighting
Fighting till my own ruin
My heart is aching when I don’t see your smile
Your smile so loving
Your eyes so knowing
Your heart… not mine
