Tonight I wanna lift up my voice,
How sweetly I can sing,
Or how well I resonate
With the music of the cosmos?
Tonight I wanna open up my heart,
The echo of its beating in time
Or the diaphanous pain of love,
Or the infinite joy of forgiveness?
Tonight I wanna open up my eyes,
The beauty in a falling drop of rain,
Or marvel within the largeness of the skies,
Or what the mirror tells me
In its stark honest fidelity?
Tonight I wanna spread my wings,
How high I can soar,
Or how far I can fly,
Or what it’s like to race the moon,
Or dip my fingers in a thundercloud or touch a star?
Tonight I don’t want bitter tears
Shed o’er my grave
For songs unsung, or deeds undone,
Or untasted fruits, or love untested.
When the time has come for me to depart,
There’ll be no reason, then, to fall apart.
