The Future


i'd been a mile from the ocean

for two months or more

never saw the water

never touched the shore


climbed to a templed ancient mountain

the weight of questions, the prayer of love

the curious allure of knowing

what's to happen before it does


a ghosted face, a changing story

the dragon's secret, only smoke

then the beauty of the mystery

taught me something more than hope


"i'll tell you the future tomorrow... I'll show you the future"


in my strength and in my weakness

in my courage, in my fear

in a vision of completeness

the spirit of the ones who passed before us circle near

saying... "tell me your dreams... show me your heart"


see the ocean on the moonlight

shine like curtains through the sun

yellow bells who whisper

each and every one


"tell me your dreams... show me your heart"


"i'll tell you the future tomorrow... I'll show you the future"
