"Weep for me not my heart gone one
Who flew from me as an eagle to the moon
Can you come to love me, if only for one day
Hold me to your bosom, close, so I
Might feel your heart
Beating love, wisdom and light upon my
Tiny bod
Will you mother come to me,
And take my baby pain away
Fill me with what was stolen from me, time and time again
See that moon, just over there, rising from the sea,
Meet me there my mother dear, embrace me til
I'm free, from all the shadows dancing round, flailing,
Brawling with deathly sound,
So come my mother, please, for just a while.
Yes,
Over there, you see that moon rising from
The sea,
Meet me there my mother, please,
Embrace me towards eternity."
- Francis Dick
