Yes yes my dears, I cannot let you out.
You are too precious to me.
I must keep you, dark and deep
knowable to only me
The way I like it
That way, I see.
My dears, my dears… So precious to me.
My dears, my dears be quiet please
I like you there, where you belong
But surely you can sing your song.
Like whispered wind through forgotten trees,
Quiet, quiet… If you please.
My dears, my dears it’s not been long,
maybe a minute or a day since I heard your song.
And conversationally you’re bad
But you’re the best friends I’ve ever had.
My dears, my dears -Just leave me alone-
It’s no good, no good I say,
And they’re not leaving soon
They don’t see it as doom and gloom
In fact they’re oblivious to that
My dears, my dears’ gentle pitter pat,
Like water drops so light and small
That for all of time, and ever, fall
There is no rock, no plate, no wall
That will not be cratered once and all.
