The Day the World Continued to Turn

Link

Let me tell you about the day, dear friends

In which the world continued to turn

I know, I know,

It surprised me too

How could the sun continue to rise and fall

Without its greatest subject to shine on

How can the earth remember to turn

When the sky has splintered and fallen

Spearing us all

Leaving one lost, lonely little boy

Who had always defined himself

By other people

And this God on Earth

Being of Light and Mercy

Was all he wished to grow up to be

The avenging angel, the gentle hand

Or the gentle whisper

“Is that really a good idea”

Would never be heard again

But the world would continue to turn

The sky would rain in reverse and

Eventually piece itself back together

The lavender lost its luster, they say

In mourning of the sunshine

No one believed would come the next day

But the world would continue to turn

And a lost lonely little boy

Would learn to stand outside of the shadows

When no one believed his legs could even hold him up

His world shattered and then formed again

Let me tell you about the day, dear friends

In which the world continued to turn
