Under the Sky
When all these notions fall beneath the sky
That covers us, while standing, waiting here
For time to bring a deeper knowing, time
we understand now why this rain still falls.
We stand here looking out towards the stars,
Not understanding distance, how it grows
And changes over time and time again.
This isn’t eternal, always changing too.
Because we think we know about the time,
And how each second passes far too slow
We feel we know about eternity.
Beyond us still and it remains unchanged.
But there is movement turning through the sky,
And changing time through all the time there is.
For time is change, a way to measure all
How far, how fast, we fall from sky to ground.
