Even the Eagle

Words © by Chris Dickenson

You're strong as the boulder that stands the test of time,
Resilient as a candle in the wind,
Determined as a woman born to lead so often is;
To make your burden lighter, lightens mine.

Rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest.
Today you have sown; tomorrow, we'll reap.
Rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest.
Even the eagle must sleep.

From sun-up to sundown, you struggle to be free;
Heedless of the beauty in this place.
Admiring your persistence, I am troubled by the cost.
But who am I to question what you see?

Rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest.
Today you have sown; tomorrow, we'll reap.
Rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest.
Even the eagle must sleep.

I can accept this fate; I've done it once before--
Adjusted as the situation changed.
To you, I seem without hope. But hope is all I have.
Who knows what the future holds in store?

Rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest.
Today you have sown; tomorrow, we'll reap.
Rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest. Kathryn, rest.
Even the eagle,
Even the eagle,
Even the eagle must sleep.
