A Billion Years

A billion years have drifted by
in seas of foamy green.
A love, still searching, one day I will find-
it's there yet goes unseen.

With reckless speech and heartfelt sighs
I've waited in the wings.
A tarnished dove sits idly by;
I dream, as she sings.

In fluffy clouds and clear blue skies
I vanish in thin air.
And no one knows what's become of me;

it's one of life's affairs.

I'm floating in a purple haze
and waiting to begin

a life I've seen through shaded eyes

and shielded with my sins.

The foamy haze of sea green waves

will soon give way to love

and everyday I'll grow myself

and thank the Lord above.
