Dirty ground and hopeless hope
Shattered dreams and lingering desires
Lay dormant, as if dead
But it was by the light of the moon
The breaking through commenced 
Brought forth the edging of a new way
The stone was cast, the desire set
Growth among the weeds
You being like the light of the sun
The rain of a thousand pretentious clouds
Soaked with striving
Life in the green of a new leaf
It was you who brought this forth
Broke the winter and caused the spring
Oh this depth, this wonder of life
Thriving when all else dies
Saved by your being
Rescued by your gentle grip
Thriving in the casting
No matter where it falls
Here, here next to you
