Mars is too close

Mars is too close

To forget about you

It is still too close

Mother,

Your tears of sadness

Drops of rain, becoming a river

Flowing into an ocean

Mars is still too close

I can still feel your tears

Mother,

Through you

One is born

Through your love

Man is grown

Learns how to love

And share in others

Joy and sorrow

All living things

Regard you as their mother,

Connected

By the umbilical cord

The blood of tears

Carrying your love

Through you

I touched the air

With a first cry,

Breathed

Through your love,

Feel the ground

Crawling,

Toddling along

Set to walk toward freedom

Gazing through a deepening blue

Mist of longing for home

With your warmth

Fading loneliness

Learn to tend this Earth,

Love everything

That you cherish

Love fills the heart,

A sea expanding endlessly

Sometimes I feel like drowning

Almost smothered

In your arms

Embracing

The darkness of the Galaxy

Mars is still too close

To forget about you

It is still too close

Mother,

Into the dark of night

The lamp in your bosom

Shines on

The trail of hope

Before too long

Angel’s whistle, her winged train

Saturn rings out her ancient song

Spinning the records of her memories

Of deeper love to come.
