All night while the rain fell
the dark valley heard in silence
the silent valley did not remember
you were asleep beside me
while the rain fell all around us
I listened to you breathing
I wanted to remember
the sound of your breath
but we lay there forgetting
asleep and awake
forgetting a breath at a time
while the rain went on falling around us
—  W.S. Merwin, “The Sound of Forgetting,” Garden Time (Copper Canyon Press, 2016)

and our best is always enough. a mix for steve & peggy, of love and bravery.

all eyes on you i will never take back the words that i said then — i will always come back to you

you know me i’m walking on air — but i’ll never regret anything that helped me see

running back to you there’s a piece of you in every song I sing — where your childhood runs wild and free

the garden where the canyons meet the sky – it takes a brave one to love this night

gravity and i can’t stop running – can you hear my heart beating?

breathless the future’s fine, at least it seems okay — it doesn’t mean a miracle should be turned away

first train home i want to run in fields, paint the kitchen, and love someone

now is the start need a thing, you already know — you are right as you are

do what you do so if you trust what’s in your heart — oh, what better can you do
