The rock will weather the human storm
And aeons hence will thrive still
Over the cold mountain, the clouds arise
And the gold sun.
We may not have been together in life
but rock does not hesitate to fall.
Our dust will mingle
under the red sun.
I have lived as all have lived
with the infinite collapse of things.
I have loved, and will love still
and soundless in the darkness.
You know who you are, my friends.
I sing your song forever
I chant the requiem and praise
of the bright world.
