Then the day came that you asked
“Give me your hand”
but I was afraid.
“Lets run to the end of the earth,
and jump off the edge so the
sun can take us into the sky.”
But I was afraid so you grabbed me by the wrist
and we ran and ran and ran to where we were going
but however far we went,
the sun was already too high to reach.
So we stood on the ground
staring up at where we would never be.
