sing (for once we were)

What is that sound high in the air
Murmur of maternal lamentation

~

oooo-weee-ooo-ooo

oooo-weee-ooo-ooo

let us sing

raise
our voices high

let us sing
a song
of sweet
sad sorrow

for the loss –
the physical loss –
is real

and the emptiness
is all
around

let us sing
for
in our minds
we are
still
one
and one

in our minds
the harpoon
and
salt water

oooo
oooo-weee-ooo-ooo

ocean
deep

oooo-weee-ooo-ooo

water
wide

oooo

let us leave
the storm behind

oooo

sing
the song of
once
we were
