From Inside

Time to close the door from inside
Turn on the light to see
Open into a window from outside
Pour in the night, be free
Once you were before you were
Here now where you may be
Someone from another world
Sharing life with the sea
Secret tides singing of
Hymn and Pslam, mourn and praise
Dreaming gifts of Love
Give back your loss and raise
Those eyes inside beyond these things
Which thicken glass unto a blind
For something more that ever brings
The missing puzzle piece of mind
Your mark is much deeper than
Surface waves may ever erase
Open up while you still can
To follow what the shadows chase
Time, to close the door from inside
Turn on the light to see
Open into a window from outside
Pour in the night, be free

Very nice. It reminds me of a book by Robert Silverberg that made a memorable impression on me. It was called "The World Inside". Of a future world where no-one was allowed out of great buildings. Thank you for bringing that back to me.

I like this inside out kind of philosophy:)
