south

you say you never walk this way
something’s growing out of this
i’m telling you i am moving today
south - that’s where it is

because the birds fly each year
and every time i feel melancholy and bliss
there must be something over there
though sometimes i’d fly almost anywhere

with all the leaving all the landing that we do
all the ways we find to be near
i’m telling you i am staying today
south – it is right here
south – it is right here
