Sylvester
I'm not big enough to love you 
so my comments sound uncouth 
I'm not old enough to know you 
please forgive my callow youth 

I'm not tall enough to see you 
above this hedge of trees 
I'm not small enough to help you 
find the answers on your knees 

I'm not wise enough to guide you 
on your travels down the road 
nor bold enough to hide you 
from the terrors fear has sowed 

But I know a simple carpenter 
who is everything I'm not 
and he can open doors for you 
the ones you've long forgot

I live in the clouds
a mid-layer between heaven and earth
I like falling to the ground in gentle rain
or inspired lightning flashes
I pretend to sleep in earth's shadow
