39 Drops falling into an open door
39 Drops of water in a reservoir
The scenery is much the same but there is something more
The scars are healing and not as painful as they were before

Now here comes the sun
The dawn gets undone
unfolding and let going of 39

39 Drops of sweet and bitter floating on my tongue
39 Drops of sweat and tears to savor,
every one
They wash away and leave behind only what belongs
Like seasons changing, rearranging and moving on

Now here comes the sun
The night starts to run
melting the canvas of 39

Water falling
spilling down to fill the pools of yesterday
never ebbing while sculpting shapes
time and tide move on

39 Drops are falling
39 Drops falling

doo n doo doo doo
doo n doo doo doo
doo n doo doo ooh
doo n doo doo doo
doo n doo doo doo
doo n doo doo ooh
