  • city on a hill
    country of patchwork quilts
    clouds on the wind
    doors without locks
    snowflakes adrift farther than i can reach
    believe with clarity
    melt away the fog of compromise
    sit down beside me
    the sun will remind us we are one
    let these days warm our being
