Small and Eternal

Train, take me to the sea.

I won’t think of her then,

looking out into infinite blue,

feeling so small and eternal.

Train, lull me to sleep again,

rat-a-tat-tatting on the tracks,

and I’ll dream of a world before

Adam’s and mine’s fall.

Train, carry me through the night,

so as the sun rises, pink and tender

in the western sky, I can feel close,

to another and better world.

Train, let me leave old life behind,

that I drove her away, that I broke

her heart, that I made old mistakes.

Let me begin again, small and eternal.
