Let us dance to soca music until our roots recognize each other

Until our souls intertwine in eternity’s playground

Where small island boy and skyscraper girl transform to homemade sorel

Co-Op city love

Enjoy each other until crushing becomes building

Until building becomes stable

becomes structured

becomes livable

Until our hearts become livable

Until love becomes the cornerstone

becomes home

becomes resting place and comfort far beyond our dreams

Till we become our dreams and all the things we live for

 

You’re a potential dream

And I don’t know whether to grab for you or let me forget you

Because I’m always so afraid that I’ll wake up and there won’t be a you

in the morning

In reality

What’s the fun in life if free falling isn’t welcomed

If your arms aren’t waiting for me to weigh them down

Like baggage

Like doorframe after wedding night

Like hand grabbing broom jumping child holding

Like late night cuddled bed rest

Like rainy day and nothing to do

I just want to do nothing with you

Watch the motions of time run by without us

Because we are stuck in our moment

Our own creation of space

The closest thing to Heaven

Where we are Godly imperfections

Just trying to find the Christ in us

Wingless angels trying to find flight in our feet

Looking for holy in each other’s palms

Thinking if we hold on tight enough we’ll reach divinity

That we’ll be the perfect fit

Where we find all that we were ever looking for

Just from the beauty in each other’s embrace
