I have loved you best I can
Though I left you many times
Now our house is just a field
Maybe we can go
Make a new home
From some of the same stuff we kept
Mixed with newness

I have loved you best I can
Every time you’d run away
Led me to the river’s edge
Underneath the bridge
Breathing, darkness
And something I never could name
Still I want to

Still I want to write it down
Still I want to understand
How to make the most of the saddest parts of us
Wasting nothing
Our ancestors’ lives on the farm
Wasting nothing
