Lease on Life

September 30, 2009

My smile has a new face

A new shape as it takes

Grasp of my emotions

That hold my curiosity

Never ceasing to amaze

The way they act so contrary

I want to be alone with

You, to cradle your voice

In my eager ears

I'm a child at your

Feet, I feel new to

This world as I see it

Through newborn eyes

I'm feeling laughter for

The first time, it rings

My heart for a different

Tune, a different beat

You've had me drumming

All the while I hear you

Humming, I wish I knew

The lyrics beneath it, but

I already know what

Your eyes have been singing
