Choral Sign

I remember that time
Twelve letters, ten minutes
When the birth of it fired the planet's torches
The world that we became

Distance and distinction
Separated and screwed
By all the becauses
Without real excuse

My memory dissents
Descends into refrain
Fearing final notes before the dance is done
Flailing about for an ember or two
A reminder of you

The road trip not taken
The trees standing firm
As philosophies strengthen
And other bonds yearn
It's all too essential
To tie off the bond
Until a note or a whim
Caught the weary wind
No matter the way in which
We while about
Two ends meet around
The song starts anew
The reminder is you
