"Closer Still"

looking past the window theres an eagle in the blue
slowly wider circles wander into view
narrowing my vision strain to see feathers trill
blur across the distance,
Closer still

looking at leaves outside Disrupt distant sky
fall amid the dying breeze never saying why
drift below the window pane peeling window sill
focus moves again for me Closer still

I can see furniture lit by mornings glow
colored fabric comes to life as creeping shadows go
as light invades the room warms the morning chill
sudden movement next to me
Closer still

looking at the sleeping face movement in my soul
running to a place inside that only we can know
eyes that open gently Sparkle in loves thrill
silently the world escapes
and brings us closer still
