The Green Pajamas


Are you here father Could you hear us come on the breeze Did you watch us arrive from the trees Are you here Will you wait forever Not knowing you'll never get better Not caring you'll never remember Loving me So do you remain Where the loons dive into the lake Where the murky water breaks And awaits And will you remain Where the moon dies in the lake To stand for ever insane In the cattails and the rain Were you here brother The green sun and seven red moons Arose from the watery room Where you drowned Did you see mother Where the heron hung from the tree Or here in the garden with me Or where I went down -------------- (c) 1989 Jeff Kelly / Half The World Publishing, BMI
