Lay it Down

Demitri

Lay it Down

I lay this body down
I lay this weight down

Water
Flesh
Muscle
Bone

I lay
As to dock
Harboring
From voyage
Long

I lay
This
Body
Down

Beneath

Star
Sky
Cloud
Storm

I lay
Into
Motion

Less
As a lake
When winter
Holds

I lay
This body
Down
Until

Heavy
Burdens
Gone

Until

Stress
Pain
Fear
Doubt
Ache
My heart
No more

Down
This body
To heal

Until
My spirit
Can once
More
Soar
