"If only for the warming coming after being cold / If only for the loving getting better getting old"

A Winter's Breath

Needing to be perfect while fearing I am not
I do my best and hope the rest of me will be all right
Knowing I am dying and that no matter what
As I ascend in pleasure to descend in pain again
Living to remember all those things I forgot
When I was young and ignorant though it may seem in vain
l have to keep looking until I see the light

In a circle again I begin to see my end
The light saw me before I was as once I used to know
Has been with me always all the places I may go
My ending my beginning my turning to transcend
While needing to go nowhere as I look and I see
I had to keep looking until I saw the light
Having looked everywhere else but here inside of me

All for now and always mine for here and everywhere
If only for the warming coming after being cold
If only for the loving getting better getting old
And I know who I am now and I came here to do good
The son and grandson of the ones who did the best they could
As I have done and I will do as I am called to sing for you
That when I disappear you may remember I was there

If only for a winter's breath suspended in the air
