Meet me in the orchard
And we'll walk among the trees.
We can drink in the sun and dance together barefoot until we fall,
Laughing, to our knees.
We can sing the song in our hearts, we can lift it to the sky
Without fear of reprisal
or someone asking, "Why?"
For a while, we can leave behind the anger, disappointment, and pain.
We can hold each other close, and, for a precious moment, become one once again.
So meet me in the orchard.
Please hurry. Time is short.
For soon I must be leaving you
And set sail for my soul's next port.
