The Edge of the World

The Edge of the World

a song for Theresa

I would follow you
to the edge of the world.

Oh, the twists and turns of life,
they shook me up
and took me by surprise:
across the deep blue sea
I came to find
the other half of me.
So I will follow you
to the edge of the world.

I could try and recite
the finest works of Pablo and Rilke alike;
but darling: all the poetry
in the world is not enough
for me to say
how much you mean to me.

I’ll stay by your side,
through the good and the bad;
be there sun, be there rain,
let me drown in your eyes
and hold you forever and ever.
I will follow you
to the edge of the world.
