Longing . . .

. . . to be Latin

 

 

We spin on an axis as bold as love round a sun that’s alight with fire

 

It’s true our time is marked by the man in the moon

 

Don’t walk ahead, don’t walk behind, just be my friend and walk by my side

 

It’s real, this life is by in the blink of an eye.

 

 

 

I live and I long to be Latin as beauty rebels against time

 

I live and I long to be Latin

 

The cardinal wish for the scent of the red summer rose.

 

 

 

We have walked the dream palace of yesterday

 

Where myth is truth and the proof’s hearsay

 

Memories disguised by the ways that we wish they could be

 

The drives and input are well defined

 

Lies rolling off dying tongues chill the soul

 

Chained in gold we walk a lifelong line.

 

 

 

I live and I long to be Latin.  I’m waiting to see my own eyes

 

I live and I long to be Latin

 

But what will I wear to the end of the world, my demise?

 

 

 

Upon the chipped dish the rich and pure fare of the love feast, kissing the sky

 

As we hold hands in a ring, the night to morning link

 

Contacts with the light

 

 

 

Be my friend, we can walk side by side

 

Don’t walk ahead you know I won’t walk behind

 

Though we stumble through our fears and tears

 

To the cadence and the tune of the spheres.

 

 

 

I live and I long to be Latin to live the fool and die the sage

 

I reach and intend to be Latin

 

To make vision real in the face of chance and circumstance

 

I live and I long to be Latin to take my stand against routine

 

I live and I long to be Latin

 

Where living at risk means I can see what others don’t see.
