You exist, you’re a gift I won’t refuse.
And even if all of this should disappear I’d still love you.
You never fit with what I think or thought I knew about you,
so every bit, I’m giving it to you,

Let my head drop and rest just next to you
and listen to your pencil move across the page,
scratching a prayer.
Then your breath warms my neck in little bursts,
soon it slows and so the world folds in again,
folds in again.

You exist, you’re a gift I won’t refuse.

It rained today for the first time in weeks,
I soaked it up and spat it out and splashed with my feet,
somehow I felt it watered my soul,
now I’m growing, I’m growing, I’m growing.

It rained the day we moved grandma out,
we packed her up and sent her on and sifted her house,
seems like it can’t be detached from her,
but she’s going, she’s going, she’s going.

It rained the day we sat by the sea,
from car to car passed sandwiches, passed flasks full of tea.
Climbed down and let the waves chase us back,
now we’re soaking, we’re soaking, we’re soaking.
