The Return (Ferron)

To lay my head on your blessed arm I take my cue from the willow tree For it don't break from just one storm But bends with a strength that keeps it free. When I was young my love was bold Bold like rock and rock like cold Kind love came and said it would be true But I turned away as though I always knew That bonds are formed from outside time Our major goal is to absolve our crimes Let your steps be travelled with that knowing smile It's no toss of coins that longest mile. For those who think, don't analyze For those who weep, dry your eyes to see It's from those we've served, a paradise And form those we've wronged, pure ecstasy. Because happiness is a moment's glance The spin inside the circle's charm And I walked my line to have my chance To lay my head on your blessed arm.
