We both sing the words in a song
I am on the surface
You reach far beyond
Growing together to grow far apart
I speak from my mind
You dream from your heart

In hearing your laughter happiness lies
Deeper than sadness
Than you will abide
My love so precious
But not defined
You are you alone and you’re mine

Moments are mortal, but rise without end
In a history of living
Together we stand
It’s a journey that has just begun
Wisdom is shifting
To father by son



from Proper Brew, released June 18, 2015
