If I Lay Here

If I lay here
On the ground, on my back
If I lay here
Quietly,
Would I hear you whisper?
If I closed my eyes and whirled around fast enough
For the world to spin,
Would it transport me to another world?
Would it take me to you?
Would it lift me off my feet
Long enough for me to breathe
In peace?
If I lay here with my ear pressed to the concrete,
If I lay here in silence,
Would I hear the well that's catching my tears?
Would I hear the well bubbling with my fears?
If I lay here....
.... If I just lay here,
Do you suppose, mayhaps, perhaps,
I wouldn't have to think hard enough to try?
I wouldn't have to think hard enough to try and fly
To find you.
I wouldn't have to think hard enough to fly
To you.
