Unwrap your skin

Tree, unwrap your skin
And hold me within…

I lived my days by ones,
I lived my days by twos,
I tasted love
And torment and sorrows.

I am now weary
Of the days cramped and broad,
I am now weary
Of the sinful and of the good,
I am now weary
Of my wretched grief
And this yearning so poor,
So tree, unwrap your skin
And hold me within

Hold me within your skin
And I shall melt in you
As a spring blossom
In this flowerless day.

In the depths of your leaves
I shall glow
As some hidden sorrow
And I shall rest in deep sleep.

And when the storms come forth
To wrest me away from you,
I shall wake up, my tree,
To roar together with you.

I shall stretch with you,
I shall creak with you
And from the winds and storms
I shall be saved with you.

And on a secret night,
When all fall asleep,
I shall repeat
Magical words to you.

Slowly we shall go,
In secret we shall creep
And make her sleepless
In her sleep.

In her dreams
A magical tree
Will take human form,
Gently it will shake
And with a human voice,
As a bright legend,
Will tell her
Of an eternal, lost love
And endless yearning

And slowly
With our gleaming sorrow
We shall melt back into the earth.
