don kirby: Music

between me and you

(don kirby)
Staring at the pale horizon, waiting for the sun to rise,
Listening to the breath of silence, filling both my ears and eyes.
Watching, listening. I've never been so awake.
And there is nothing, nothing like this daybreak.

Beholding a burst of beauty, blinding with a flood of light.
Breezes free to race unruly, chasing the forgotten night.
The land is swept clean, the sky blown blue,
Lord, there is nothing, nothing between me and you.

The curtain is torn from hem to hem,
From the sky down to the ground.
The hand by which it was rent
Beckons us beyond the shroud.
Time is torn in two today,
Leaving one eternal Now.
Years and seasons fall away,
Leaving only I and Thou.

Watching as the sun climbs higher, knowing it will never set.
Blaze of purifying fire sweeps across from East to West.
The land is swept clean, the sky blown blue,
And there is nothing, nothing between me and you.
Nothing, nothing, nothing.
No, there is nothing, nothing between me and you.
