THE PATHOS OF THINGS This dream that beats through me, forms a sense I drink within Like the leaves I bathe within, my life gleams within this swim I’m weightless now Drifting Faintly balanced in the air Things will come and things will go Of this I am aware Things will come and things will go, some will die and some live through The powder of the past coats this tree in pristine blue In this swim I see the course of passing days and nights gone by In this swim I see the gift of swimming deep in this one sky This dream that beats through me keeps me balanced in the air The pathos of all things keeps me free yet still aware Aware of time and sadness Aware of loss and sorrow Aware of flesh and eyesight and my hopes that crave tomorrow Heartache, stillness, enjoyment – they are all the same to me The colors, the contours, the clarity This fine dream it keeps me free The pathos of all things keeps me floating in these leaves Aware of beauty here And the glowing in these trees
