Take Away the World

The drifting air takes me close
To the evening moon.
I wonder where you dawn and set.
The pine trees try to touch
The earth not with shame;
They try to bow not in regret.
I keep watching how the
Night sky turns blue
In the early hour.
The river soothes my mood
The sound of the water is my music
Tiny glittering music of birds
Become my color.
The music paints the sky
I stand on this earth
Not like you;
I have a reason to be.
To write is to find and add
One more reason to be.
Come set me free
Come close before going afar
To drink this memory
You and I can take away the world.
