The earth alone our witness, we uttered silent love
But she could not hold what we ourselves could not sustain
We exchanged hearts and promptly lost our vows.
We exchanged words and my heart has forsaken me
It recalls the pulsing of your blood through its veins
And my lips cannot forget the shape of love.
Oh that the earth would speak,
That she would assure us our vows are not utterly defiled
That she would give us reason to reconcile
And we could converge and renew our forgotten exchange.
