tonight

tonight she will lay down with the night
let these foreign hills pillow her head
and she will weep
one last time she will weep
for the child who lies buried here beneath
for the family and home she has left behind
for the man she loves and will never see again
tonight let her tears seep into this soil
let the grief and the loss drain away with each drop
and when the sun rises she will awake
in the arms of the man whose tears mingle with hers
together they’ll make this their new home-land
and she will grow to love him


from Raven’s Song
