I did not keep the watch, my love.
I left my post abandoned.
I thought I was the hero, love.
I was just the stand-in.

I tried to hear the Voice of Love.
That voice is so demanding.
And all that it commands of me
Is to cease with all commanding.

I did away with thought my love.
I killed my understanding.
You feel responsibility
But this you had no hand in.

So bucking like a stallion who
Rebels against his branding
I went looking for the place that I
Was meant to take a stand in.

I found that place. It was no place.
No ship there at the landing.
And how could I return to you
my post so long abandoned?
