When you’re away
I confess
That the earth rotates
The wind blows
The windmill revolves

When you’re here
I confess
That the solid dissolves
The Colors of the rainbow glow
The world spreads its warmth
I bare the unbearable
The daily, the normal and the formal
And that all things sparkle

When you’re here
The sun’s light sneaks in

When you’re here
The world’s on fire.
