We’re just two lovers sitting in the park,
Waiting for the end of the world.
We do not rush-
No, instead we linger,
In earthy stillness,
Just to see if love never truly ends.
We watch the grass dance with bumble bees,
And the wind play with shadows;
All is quiet, until I lean over and whisper in my lover’s ear:
‘Bury me beneath that tree.
The one covered in green, green ivy’
That way it’s roots can fill my veins
And I, too, will become overgrown,
Filling in the lonely parts of us.
My heart will swell with rainwater,
And my soul can drink in the wind.
