The One Who Knows


Time it was I had a dream
You're the dream come true
If I had the world to give
I'd give it all to you

I'll take you to the mountains
I will take you to the sea
I'll show you how this life became
A miracle to me

You'll fly away
But take my hand until that day
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done
You'll be the one who knows

All the things you treasure most
Will be the hardest ones
I will watch you struggle on
Before the answers come

But I won't make it harder
I'll be there to cheer you on
I'll shine the light that guides you down
The road you're walking on

You'll fly away
But take my hand until that day
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done
You'll be the one who knows

Before the mountains call to you
Before you leave this home
I want to teach your heart to trust
As I will teach my own

But sometimes I will ask the moon
Where it shined upon you last
And shake my head and laugh and say
It all went by so fast

You'll fly away
But take my hand until that day
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done
You'll be the one who knows

dear monkey. i mean aj.
i know your mom has been busy with all kinds of things like feeding you and changing your diaper and giving you kisses. but if she's anything like my mom, which i'm pretty sure she is, i think she may have also been taking a lot of pictures of you. and could you please tell her to put them up on the blog? because i really want to see you! well i'll see you next week probably. but i want to look at your face now. and if she doesn't. i just might cry. or do something really awful like poop all over. oh wait. i already do those things. anyway. just tell her that she should. see you soon little buddy!
your friend,
miri
