What We Are

"What are we?", you ask again

With tears brimming on your eyes

Have you forgotten what I said

When you asked the other times?


Just look at our trembling hearts

That reach far above our heads

The same way waves reach for the stars

They fall and raise again


Just look at the tears in our eyes

That, for a moment, let us glimpse

Past the leak and into the sky

Above our churning dark abyss


What are we? Oh, you must see,

What with our salt-water eyes

Our hearts that speed up at the beat

And our neverending minds


Seventy-three percent water

So remember when you cry,

My darling, you are an ocean

And your sea will never run dry
