As The World Burns by Khalil-Ghibran from After Fire Comes The Rain

As The World Burns

It’s you and me
As alone as two can be
It’s all on us

I turn to you
You said to me
Our is eternally

As soon as it ends
Then we can begin
To let it all go up

As the ritual’s told
A gift for the soul
We summon higher power

For this life we live
And so then it is
We’re all caught up

To pay the cost
Of love and loss
Journey in flesh

Not much will remain
For what we gave
As the world burns
