Tonight a Star Fell From the Darkness…

Tonight a star fell from the darkness,
A branch was torn from the willow tree.
The wind stopped blowing in the stillness,
And the stranger came for me.
Lifetimes lost and pages counted,
Wings gather voices that whisper prayers.
The shout of trumpets, flesh to flesh,
Follow footsteps climbing stairs.

Face to face, side by side,
Lines drawn by issues in the sand.
Every name hath both time and reason,
Every scar defines a man.

Tonight a star fell from the darkness,
A branch was torn from the willow tree.
The wind stopped blowing in the stillness,
And the stranger came for me….

Love forged from storm a cathedral,
A woman’s breath, tongue to breast.
Destinies painted by fingers stroking,
Less is more, and more is less.
Tired eyes call from the distance.
A man’s a hymn, a refugee.
Dreams formed from ashes disappearing,
Souls find bodies in the sea.

Tonight a star fell from the darkness,
A branch was torn from the willow tree.
The wind stopped blowing in the stillness,
And the stranger came for me.
