Prelude to the Earth


Can you remember the first step we took?
As if written in a fairy tale book?
Can you recognize the first sky we met?
As the sun was turning red?

I know the trace of your footsteps
And all the needles you have kept
More than the back of my hands

I know the paths that you took
And all the turns that made you look
From where the mountain stands

You and I were just another cloud
But we found the rain warmest
When the earth screamed loud
We kept our feeling honest

a night for you are a day,
Andri Kurniawan
