1. I was very little

the dark was very scary

and I had to learn how to

play alone

keeping the monsters at bay


2. I was a little bit bigger

dawn crossed dusk

and I saw you clearly

a shadow

afraid of rain and sunlight


3. I was just as big as you

and brilliant light shone

through all your cracks

the fading

away and the rot seething


4. I made a thing unlike

all things before this one

giving love, life and light

breathing in

becoming more than you
