From the water
From the rock
And the dirt
You were
The first person
On Earth

Oh the mountains
And the oceans
Wiynessed
Your birth
The first person
On Earth

By a river
On the banks
Of a sandy shore
Untouched clean
Fresh and pure
The first person
On Earth

In the light
Of the sun
You emerged
To see the good
In the world
Before the pain
And the scourge
The first person
On Earth

In the quiet
In the calm
Before
The storm
You heard
The dream
For a love
That never dies
In a poem
The first person
On Earth

And I'm in love
With you
I'm in love
With a dream
That can not be
Realized
Held or seen
By
The last person
On Earth

After
The earthquakes
The hurricanes
The fires
And floods
I'm
Jaded cynical
Angry and glum
The worlds
Too absurd
And obscene
For true love
And more
Than happy
To let me become
The last person
On Earth

To let me stand
On a rock
The Muddy Waters
Surround
Abandoned alone
The end
Soon to come
As the last person
On Earth

As
The waters rise
At the end
Of the world
Thought I bear
The weight
Of the rock
And the dirt
I know
I'm worthy
Of your love
As
The last person
On the Earth

As the water rise
At the end
Of the world
Thought I bear
The weight
Of the rock
And the dirt
I know
I'm worthy
Of your love
As the last person
On the Earth
