Days Believed
by Ron Septimus

no itís not been easy
finding the words that bring
breath to notes shaping
this space in-between
no it hasnít been easy
a simple good life
trying to show new colors to you
and all the natural hues
.
it hasnít been that great
waiting for stars to fall
youíve been rather kind
to feel tenderness for so long
while waiting for your heart
to emerge from a dark moon beam
and all of my deeds seen
aligned like a sunlit dream
.
still if there was any question before
an answer waited long at your door
for you to show me
all of your ways
in all of the days
you were almost believing
.
so let all of the days meander
like water down stream
and let me remember what love means
to get caught in itís tide to make me wise
to know what truth brings
.
and was it not love
that thing that we put on the throne
or perhaps it was guilt
perhaps i should leave it alone
but for all of my dreams
revealed in the light of day
for in all of our hopes to
connect in that real human way
.
still there could have been no answer before
a question waited long at your door
for you to show me
all of your ways
i once believed in
.
still there was an asking before
that love would come knocking at the door
and I emerge from the dream
so let all of the days meander
like water down stream
and let me remember what love means
and so let all of our days begin
and know that that you were believed
and believed in
