Track Name: Eternity
Each dawn draws lines between what is illuminated and shadows staggering behind.
It makes me feel sure of everything I see, and most of what I can’t, or at least more fearless. It comforts me.
I take refuge in an endless span of time,
In whose lap I rest my head.
Whose fingers brush warm safety through my hair.
“Why is it called a watch?”
Moments go uncounted here.
“There’s nothing there to see.”
Track Name: Entirety
Ten million minutes pass and I grip you, encased in gold.
I have claimed you as mine to hold: in my pocket, in my fist, in a fortress.
I’ve aged, and see the value in your hands now
No longer seeking safety as much as I’m seeking to save
my minutes that escape.
Now crush this watch upon the ground
Watch the hands as they quake
Among shards smaller than the seconds counted.
The truth glitters like the broken face:
Minutes can’t be stored away, only spent in their given day.
In fear of losing my time granted,
Comes knowing that it was never,
Knowing time was never mine to keep.

Smiling, sure and brave,
With the brilliant setting sun, time slips down a radiant horizon steep.
Eternity. Entirety.
I think, “Every letter shared.”
As I am called to sleep.
